This happened to me after installing the "AccountsDialog" user
management facility that was described as wonderful in a recent
e-week article.  To do anything I logged in via ssh.  Once back
in I uninstalled AcountsDialog (I think there was one dependency
that I uninstalled as well) and installed the KDE login manager.
Even after uninstalling "AccoountsDialog" the problem remained.
KDE log in works and I now log in from there selecting the GNOME session
option as default.  At least I am back in business.
