Question Gnome Prob /w 1 user. How can I restore defaults?? Is this Possible (RH9)

I think this occured after I tried to save a session with a lot of windows open ... but any time I log on with my user ID I get a ton of gnome-settings-daemon errors. Nautilis error and gnome-panel errors. I noticed one message said something like the config may have been loaded too many times .... will try to reset at next login.

I dont have any problems if I logon with root. I made a new account and that works fine. I there any way to restore default settings on the screwed up account or something???

Thanks ....

In case of gnome you could try to remove (or move away) the ~/.gnome directory (actually I don't use gnome, so the directory name could be something else like .gnome2, .gnomerc or .gnome.d but you probably got the point allready.) Also if there is a directory called Desktop (or was it only in kde) that can also cause problems (you could move it away also).
