login problem ".ICEauthority...

When I log into Ubuntu (8.04 running Gnome desktop) a message now pops up...
„Gnome session manager can't unlock..ICEauthority...“ and I can't get any further.
Sytem has been running ok for months. I checked permissions with failsafe terminal...
ls -l/home/tony.ICEauthority returns..-rw------1 tony tony etc.
I can only get in as root from the recovery mode. Can anybody help me out here please?
