Here's the idea:
- standard Debian testing Gnome setup.
- killall metacity.
- start good'ol ctwm, emacs, and xterm.

Well, if you're literally doing that, that will tend to leave bits of gnome hanging about. You might be regarding that as a feature. However, if you're using the usual gdm display manager and you want a "pure ctwm" session with no gnome, which might also be useful to see if the problem still happens under it (probably won't, given no clipboard manager), an alternative might be to drop the attached file into


at least until such a time as the ctwm debian package supplies its own session definition (there's been a bug about the missing definition open since 2005, sigh: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=330045 ), then you should just be able to select CTWM at login time.

(The openbox wm package bundles more complex session definitions, including ones showing how to "cleanly" do openbox+gnome or openbox+kde)
