After puzzling through the many X11 files I realized that all I had to
do was create a .xsession file in my home directory with the one line
entry "exec icewm".

As to my earlier comments about the "lecture" I understand the problem
but I think the "do your homework first" while fine for those of us who
can - and, admittedly I can when pressed to do so - will prevent debian
linux from ever becomming everyman's desktop solution.  When you have a
working desktop which disappears after an upgrade the natural response
is "What have you done to my system?" not "I wonder what they changed?
I better do my homework before asking questions."
