ah, the trick i have found is to do two things in the control center:

1) set the wmx in the window manager section
2) go to the "startup programs" section
2.1) click on "browse currently running programs"
2.2) select the one that says enlightenment and click on "remove"

i should put this on my website...

this is, IMHO, a bug in the default configuration of gnome (it starts
e in two places)
