I say 'fixed' and not 'solved' since I have no idea what happened!

I was booting into recovery mode and trying to get wifi to work, 
something to do with the atheros drivers. google yielded a tip about 
changing something in the udev-ilish rules as there was this weird 
atl1.c driver that kept showing up in dmesg as failing.

all I know is that I got wifi to work and decided to do a normal boot, 
that is, cold boot and proceed automatically to X.

no problem. went from start to gui without a hiccup and with normal 
use of touchpad and keyboard.

wicd isn't behaving so that's the next front.

if I wanted to set the default window-manager from the commandline, 
which script do I alter?
