It is ignored because gnome3 is using 'gsettings' and not 'gconf'.
There is a graphic front-end for the first, called dconf, but it is
so clumsy right now that 'gsettings' utility seems to be vastly

If anything can be set there to affect a window manager choice I
have no idea.

OTOH "Classic GNOME" can be started up from gdm because there is
a file /usr/share/xsessions/compiz-gnome.desktop and in it:

Exec=/usr/bin/gnome-session --session=compiz-gnome

where this 'compiz-gnome' is described by a text file

I did not yet try to see if anything similar, and working, can be
put together for sawfish.
