    make sure that you have the line XSESSION="gnome" in your /etc/rc.conf file

    also do an ls -a and see if you have a .xinitrc in your home directory, this overrides the system default of /etc/rc.conf and will change your window manager

    during some system updates config files are over written, so check these out and let us know...also make sure the rc.conf line is uncommented
    Operating System: GNU Emacs

    The rc.conf was overwritten.

    Thank you.
