You should manage this symlink with the update-alternatives command,
not manually tho.
The easiest thing to do is:
update-alternatives --config x-window-manager
If the window-manager you want is not listed as available you can
install it with:
update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/x-window-manager \
x-window-manager /usr/bin/<thewmiwant> PRIORITY
Where PRIORITY is a number higher than the highest existing priority
for the x-window-manager alternative. You can ge ta list of
update-alternatives --display x-window-manager
