"save settings" when exiting gnome messed everything up

I just exited gnome and clicked the save settings option before rebooting, now my gui is all messed up - both top and bottom panels have gone, except theres a blank top panel which I cant add any buttons to.

Basically I need to know how to get rid of whatever session save files there are, or how to revert back to default startup settings

Oh, and I'm using Fedora 4.

OK, I managed to add a new panel, add the login button to it then logout and log back in as root - which thankfully is ok, but I need to fix my other user... any ideas?
