When I reinstall GNUstep, I remove my (regular user) ~/GNUstep directory,
before I start gdomap. When I log in via xdm, gdnc and gpbs get started
and a new ~/GNUstep/.GNUstepDefaults will be created, as expected.

However, if I use any window manager (with exception of Window Maker),
the content of ~/GNUstep/.GNUstepDefaults is

{ }

(yes, on one line).

After logging off, removing ~/GNUstep and logging in again, this time
using Window Maker, ~/GNUstep/.GNUstepDefaults will be created again,
but the content is

{
    NSGlobalDomain = {
    };
    gdnc = {
    };
}

And it's certainly not created by wmaker.inst
