I have followed instructions to set the gnome classic as default desktop permanently here: How to make gnome classic the default desktop using command line tools?

But every time I reboot the ubuntu desktop comes up and the file is changed back.

How do I set the classic gnome desktop permanently?

You're aware that 11.10 uses Gnome 3 right?, and that you'll have TONS of conflicts should you want to use Gnome 2. –  Uri Herrera Oct 23 '11 at 18:56

It's supposed to remember your last session every time you login, is it not doing that for you? –  Jorge Castro Oct 23 '11 at 19:26

Do you use Oneiric (Ubuntu 11.10) with autologin on lightdm? It seems similar to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/lightdm/+bug/834515 which just got fixed in a proposed update to Oneiric, if that's the issue the fix should reach stable updates in the next week.
