To clarify - you can start metacity and it works but doesn't "stick"?
And no other window manager takes its place in a fresh session? That's
very strange. If both window managers are functional, GNOME should
definitely pick one of them when it starts. Sounds like something is
seriously wrong with your session management. Probably some other
component isn't installed - do you see any errors of any sort in
~/.xsession-errors? You might also try wiping all the GNOME related
hidden directories in your home dir and starting fresh if you haven't
tried that already.
