Hmm, not sure what the problem is, but to jump start GNOME in the past,
I've used:

#! /bin/sh
xterm &
exec gnome-session

Then from the xterm, I started a window manager, panel and gmc (if you
like). Check the gnome-control-center to see what it says about the
window manager, gmc and panel.  They all should be set for
restart/recycle or some such.

You should have a /usr/share/sawmill/<version>/themes/ . Apparently that
would be the place to unpack a *.tgz file.

A lot of applications (but certainly not all) have non-changing
"resource" files in /usr/share/<app>.
