that's not correct. the single/multiple window mode to which you refer
does not control which window manager runs. exceed has three window
Native (MS manages windows)
X (WM of your choice)
Default to Native (MS manages windows until you start WM of your choice).
the last option is the most useful.
to turn this option on, look in:
Exceed Toolbar ->
Screen Definition ->
Window Manager ->
Default to Native (<- the good one)
