changing the runlevel and then changing it back will do the trick without
a full reboot:

	telinit 3
	telinit 5

This will still drop all of your terminals. I don't know of a graceful
way to change display managers without breaking connections to all of 
the displays.

KDM and GDM look for their session configurations in different places,
hence the two different config files for IceWM. Symlinks do work here,
so I can change that in the next build as well:

	rm /usr/share/apps/switchdesk/Xclients.icewm
	ln -s /etc/X11/gdm/Sessions/IceWM /usr/share/apps/switchdesk/Xclients.icewm
