Glad that you like the new WM's I've gotten running :) I've also got a 
version of KDE3 waiting to compile, and Enlightenment as well. I've also 
figured out why they were hanging at logout, and it will be fixed when 
they rebuild. It had to do with the CrashHandler helper application 
being run on them, which isn't necessary for WM's. I've added a flag so 
we can disable that now for any application.
