I think the easiest way to fix this is to go to the Gnome Session
Manager, and set "metacity" to trash, then hit apply.  Then, from a
terminal, type

killall metacity; sleep 2; sawfish &

and you should get sawfish up.  Set it to a low prioriy with restart in
the session manager, and then save the changes.  This is for LFS, but
Gnome 2, so it should work in redhat.
