I had a problem recently where gdm wouldn't let me log in. I checked
the logs (logged into vc) and found that the problem was I ran out of
space on / (where /tmp was) so the gnome startup stuff couldn't create
files in /tmp. I fixed it by running "apt-get auto-clean".
You may have a different problem, but I would check the X logs and
your disk space.
