Ah. This is tricky, because (AFAIK) the precise location of the

call gdm as root to begin an X session.
gdm gets the init script from /etc/X11/gdm/Sessions/foo, where foo is

script there *puzzled expression*). I believe (from reading the icewm
docs) that xdm (the vanilla X login manager) reads ~/.xinitrc or
If you're really stuck then this will search you WHOLE HARD DRIVE for relevant files:
grep -ri exec.*icewm
also, it's gotta be an executable file, so the `x' permissions will be
set. You might be able to get find to look for files based on that.
Sorry i can't be of more help :/
PS: can everyone please avoid html-mail if possible? it looks real yuk.
