Try logging in with a terminal (ie ssh), and executing the gnome-session
from the command line. Any errors should be output to the screen for you to
view. Just press control-C to exit (since it won't allow input interrupts
any other way in your terminal), and be sure to note the errors prior to
pressing control-C (since bonobo likes being verbose about "object issues").
Also try the same for gdm. If the errors pass by too quickly or there are a
lot of errors, you can filter the output into a text file using the indirect
operator, ie gdm > mygdm.log and then just scan through the log file at your
own leisure.
