This sounds a bit like problems I had when logging in with a
misconfigured localhost line in my /etc/hosts file. What does the line
beginning with "127.0.0.1" read in yours? For example, mine reads:
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain serenity
If this is configured correctly, then maybe you could try a different
login manager, ie:
apt-get install gdm
Hope this helps,
