FreeBSD 5.2: How do I automatically restart twm with the

This is the twm that comes with 5.2. These problems occured when I was not
using a ~/.twmrc or ~/.xsession.
I found that there is some problem with xsm restarting twm within a session.
I tried everything I could think of but twm always dumps core when its
restarted by xsm. Twm only works correctly when a Fail Safe session is
started by xsm. I figured out how to eliminate the session dialog after I
logged in by adding "xsm -session Default" in my .xsession, but when twm
dumps core, it leaves the session locked, and that prevents me from
subsequently automatically logging into the Default session.
I ended up just running twm from my .xsession and not using xsm at all. It
seems to work fine.
If anyone has a workaround for these problems, let me know.

Is this actually twm as installed from the base X packages?
Are you starting it from xdm(1) or startx(1)?
What does your .xsession or .xinitrc look like?
Does removing your personal .twmrc have any effect?
