A clean copy:

    #!/bin/sh
    exec /usr/bin/fvwm >| $HOME/.fvwm-stdout 2>| $HOME/.fvwm-stderr & WMPID=$!
    xterm …
    xterm …
    swisswatch -title local -noshape
    xconsole -name console -file /dev/xconsole -exitOnFail
    xclock -strftime "%a %d"
    # and so on
    # wait for the window manager in the background to die
    wait $WMPID
