no desktop environments here, only a plain window manager + screenlets

i start either compiz or vtwm (or twm, or gwm, etc) from the console
command line, using a set of aliases that expand to something like

% startx ~/.xsession.windowmanager > .xsession.errors 2>&1 &

Sean, i don't know if this is relevant, but i have not a
~/.config/compiz/ directory (erased by error), is it possible that
libcompizconfig chokes on that? but then, it is the case of each new
