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?

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.
