I discovered that sawfish, metacity and enlightenment work. Blackbox and uwm don't (weird effects happen instead though - quite interesting!).

Still to try wmaker and a couple of others.

The problem with gnome is that it stalls on startup for about 3 to 5 mins with certain window managers: wmaker, uwm, blackbox, icewm

but for others (enlightenment, metacity, lwm) it's not a problem.

I think it lies with either gnome-proxy or gnome-session, I'm not sure how to find out. Any clues anyone?
