If you have got as far as startx, then you need an .xinitrc file in your
home directory - NOT .xsession, that's for the pretty login ;-)

In there put

exec sawfish &
exec gnome-session

and make it executable.

If you don't want kde get rid of it!

apt-get --purge remove kdebase

but there are possibly more packages than that installed

You did install sawfish-gnome didn't you?  Sawfish, but with a few tweaks
for Gnome compatibility.
