no difference. On 6.4 alpha as soon as I put
dbus-launch --exit-with-session mwm in $HOME/.xsession
I couldn't get anything from mwm, i.e. there was no reaction to
any mouse clicks. I would get xdm login window, login fine,
but then mwm wouldn't react to mouse clicks. Typically I use the
right button to bring up a menu from where I launch xterm.
But neither button would show anything.
Adding xterm, or any other program to .xsession after the dbus
line didn't work either. But there were several dbus processes
In short, my impression was that mwm (or fvwm) didn't work well with dbus,
and some session initialisation process would never finish.
On 8.0 ia64 I replicated everything as it was on 6.4 alpha,
and it worked.
