[K12OSN] IceWM default window manager setting lost

My default window manager setting has been lost and I can't figure out 
how to permanently reset it to IceWM. I googled and poked around on the 
internet, to no avail. I tried switchdesk, and that program runs, but 
nothing changes permanently. If I log in using the Default setting, I 
get a Gnome desktop, if I select IceWM, and then log in at the k12ltsp 
login screen, I get the desktop I used to get by default. I had it set 
up so nautilus is not running when I login by default, and I have the 
plain-jane blue windows background.

I also have one terminal that is supposed to boot and use an auto login 
and run a script when it logs in -- that terminal is not booting 
properly and running it's usual script -- it boots to some kind of 
FailSafe desktop -- I hope nothing serious has happened. All the kids 
are on break, and so I'm not sure if the problem is more widespread than 
these two users (my user and the login for the autologin terminal).

Thanks for any help.
