(see my post from June 14 2002 to the list, for why I suggested the above
change to /usr/bin/openoffice.
When I mentioned it earlier that day on IRC, the dependence on /proc being
mounted was mentioned as a possible problem. A solution I just thought of
- instead of
if ls -l /proc/$SMPID/exe | grep -q " \-> [^ ]*gnome-session; then

do something more like

if readlink -f `ps -p$SMPID -ocmd --no-heading` | grep -q "^[^ ]*gnome-session"; then

Removes the explicit dependence on /proc, but requires a package dependency
on the package debianutils. Again, as far as I can see, this makes the
session manager detection work properly on systems which use
/etc/alternatives to set the session manager. I doubt it's actually
specific to GNOME2 at all...
