Fully replace Metacity with Openbox

I'd like to replace Metacity with Openbox as my default Window Manager. I'm running Debian Stable.

Everything I need is installed, and the command
openbox --replace
Works, but as soon as I log-out (or reboot), even if I select the Gnome/Openbox session, Metacity starts along with Gnome.

I also tried this, but in vain:

I'd like Openbox to be my only WM!
