I've had good luck with icewm. It doesn't mess up the sound,
loads fast, has basic window focus features, and seems pretty small.
I just setup a .xinitrc starting
icewm-light (or icewm)
(this is from memory, not the exact contents, but close).
Works fine every time for me.
For normal desktop I use KDE, which I didn't like too much for
myth. It messed up the sound too much and was to honking big
when you don't need it.
Just my $.02 worth.
