           Summary: gnome-wm does not work with fvwm/fvwm2
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: gnome-session
        AssignedTo: seb128 at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: camh+ubuntu at xdna.net
         QAContact: desktop-bugs at lists.ubuntu.com

If you set your gnome window manager to fvwm2, the session login hangs
waiting for fvwm to respond to the session manager. This is because it
is not being passed the correct arguments to identify the client ID.

[NOTE: This bug was reported in Debian as #289969 and fixed in version
2.8.1-6 - The patch linked to that bug report applies to the current
hoary version of gnome-wm]
