I hope you didn't lose much work. If it happens again, log into a
console the way you did, as yourself (not root) and try this:
mv .gnome2 .gnome2.old
This will move all of your Gnome customizations to a backup folder, but
not get rid of them completely. Then, log out, go back to your GUI and
try again. If it works, you'll have the default Gnome desktop and have
to start customizing it again, but that's probably quicker than
reinstalling. And, if you're brave, you can move things across from the
old to the new .gnome folder one at a time until it stops working to
find out which file was corrupt.
The nice thing about this is, if it doesn't work, you can still
reinstall with almost no time lost.
