Upstreams just confirmed me that this gconf key isn't read at all in
GNOME 2.4.

The point is not changing the gconf key, which isn't used. You have to
save your session when it is running sawfish. It will be restored with
sawfish when you log in. My guess is that you were still running the
default session, having it configured through update-alternatives.
