Yes, sorry, I was mixing up the package release with the VM release -
there's nothing in the packages that would change the window manager.

I don't know whether xfce or its display manager might be the cause
of any problems. You could try changing it.

In YaST2:

  * Go to System --> /etc/sysconfig Editor

  * in the /etc/sysconfig Editor, go to:

    - Desktop --> Display manager --> DISPLAYMANAGER
      and change it to something else e.g. xdm


    - Desktop --> Window manager --> DEFAULT_WM
      and change it to e.g. windowmaker (if you have it installed)

    I've used the combination of xdm and windowmaker successfully
    in the past.
