This will sound weird...
Do you have a sound card installed and the "sound server" options
selected? If you do not have a sound card you may find that something is
indefinately waiting to open a non-existant sound device to play audio -
certainly I've had this with nautilus on various GNOME desktops so I'm
just guessing that it could also have this effect. Please let me know
whether you have audio?

preventing a correct login - when you reboot I suspect they are getting
Remove any lockfiles from /tmp or just clean it and restart X.
