I don't think this is right...I've fiddled a lot with window managers,
and I switch them ``mid-flight'' quite a bit.  (Since I have an xterm
as the final exec'd command, killing my window manager doesn't end my
x session.)  If what you're saying is true, every time I switch window
managers, all my windows would die, effectively ending the session.
Needless to say, this doesn't happen.
