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)

Gnome isn't starting E (or wmx) in two places - you are starting one window manager in xsession, and the control center is starting another. The solution is to remove any window manager commands from xsession, and use the control center to start the window manager.
