    You could check the list archives, it's an FAQ. Basically, Gnome people
    say: "Window Manager" ist tech-speak and should not be user visible.
    People who know that the want another wm are capable of setting it in
    session properties.

    Go to session properties, look for metacity and set it not to respawn.
    Then in a terminal, do "killall metacity && sleep 5 && <new window
    manager>&". Then gnome-session-save&
