gnome difficulties

A few days ago the gnome panel and nautilus lost significant functionality. I'm running AMD64 debian. When I log in, the gnome pane appears, but does not become populated with icons. It blinks several times and then I get a variety of similar behaviors. Either:

1. I get a message the nautilus has died and the gnome-panel has died
2. I get a message the the gnome-settings-daemon has tried to start too many times

After I click close on each of the buttons, the panel does become populated with icons, but I have no control over the theme.

I have started filing a bug report with gnome, but the behavior on crash is complicated enough that I have had to start over a couple of times. I'm wondering whether Debian plays a role.
