xml? gconf? cant login as user


hi...i have gentoo and am not able to login as a normal user. Every time I try to do so, it comes up with the error:

could not resolve the address "xml:readwrite:/home/username/.gconf" in the configuration file "etc/gconf/2/path"
Couldnt resolve address for configuration source: cant read from or write to the XML root directory in the address "xml:readwrite:/home/username/.gconf"

Tried to read up about gconf and xml..but its a little confusing.

Does the directory exist in the first place, if so, what are
its permissions? Not that I think it should stop you from
logging in... what happens if you try to log in to a console?


Cheers,
Tink
