audit errors and startup problem

Hi,
after on oft the latest updates (the update with the new gdm-greeter), I
can no longer login into my GNOME (or any other) session via GDM. GDM
displays a label saying something like 'booting ...', even though the
boot process is completed.

/var/log/messages says:
Aug 22 13:46:09 simon gdm(pam_unix)[3101]: session opened for user simon
by (uid=0)
Aug 22 13:46:10 simon gdm[3158]:
session_child_run: /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession gnome-session  konnte nicht
ausgeführt werden [ in english: could not be executed ]
Aug 22 13:46:21 simon gdm(pam_unix)[3101]: session closed for user simon

However, I can run my GNOME session with startx.

I don't know whether this relates to the problem or not, but I get tons
of audit messages on startup in dmesg (here are just some of them):
