gnome themes problem

i just upgraded my sistem via apt. Somehow it changed my window manager settings, i cant use the gnomethemes i was using until now, the only way i can change the appearance of the windows are in sawfish configurator?

i can i make the gnomethemes work again for the windows border and controls?

ok you simply stated that you upgraded your system via apt ...
and i assume you stated this, cause of the fact that your problem started after you did this..
so the question now is, what did you update ? and do you get any errors ?
if so state them ..

i did a whole sistem upgrade, from "stable" to "testing". There were no errors, and it actually didnt update that much because I was already running a lot of unstable stuff on my machine, including gnome. It did upgrade some gnome packages... but ive done this before and its the first time something breaks like this ive taken a look through the changes it made... didnt see anything special.

i havent taken the time to know how gnome works... has it always used sawfish as "window manager"? Ive noticed now that sawfish is running, and ive never noticed the sawfish configurator before...

and ive noticed that i dont have the function to move to another workspace when i right click on a window. i actually dont get any pop menu...
