  2 questions 
  Is this still the method you would recommend to make icewm the only option for all users?

  Will the script you sent (below) work with those changes to give only a specific UID access to Gnome?

if you followed my previous post you can block everything except icewm. Hence 
will be executed for everyone.
Now all you need to do is figure out your UID. Lets pretend your UID
is 500. Stick this

if [ $UID -eq 500 ];then
exec /usr/bin/gnome-session
exit 0

at the beginning of etc/X11/gdm/Sessions/IceWM so you will be the only
one who gets in using GNOME.
