Well, the correct place for question like this is the debian-gtk-gnome
mailing list, and there were already many discution about the the window
manager issue, but i don't remember something similar about your
situation. Just ask this question there.
BTW, having gnome2 boot without a windows manager is not nice, but
having it start with twm is a quite funny experience.
