Not sure what the difference is (sorry).
When the system starts I get multiple messages along the lines of "Gnome
Display Manager [FAILED]".
startx gives me what looks like a gnome environment, minus the
lockscreen and whatnot.

It is gdm that fails to start.  Try:

# dpkg-reconfigure gdm

gdm doesn't exist any more in Debian Jessie. It is now called gdm3

Report any error messages verbatim if possible.
