Still have the problem and I can get into the non-gui login (Shift-Ctrl-F1)
/var/log/messages  and /var/log/gdm/* have no inkling to what is wrong.
I do not see any ~/.xsession-errors.

Any other place to look for errors?

You probably are missing whatever the xsession is trying to run.  If you
switch to a tty and check ~/.xsession-errors, you'll probably see
something more enlightening
