Bug Description

I installed the wmii 2-2 package from the universe repository via synaptic. I rebooted and only my desktop showed up. My panels weren't there. And there was an error message to the effect "detected a panel already running, exiting"

I expected to be able to pick in gdm to use wmii but I wasn't given the option.

If you install Ratpoison from the universe repository, it is added as a session option in GDM. Wmii should do the same after it's installed.
