Can't log in as regular user

Hi I hope someone can help me? I'm running Fedore 1 and I suddenly can't log in as myself. The only thing I've done recently was set up an account for my wife. I was messing around in her account trying to set it up for Korean. Here is what is in the .xsession-errors file:

/etc/X11/gdm/PreSession/Default: Registering your session with wtmp and utmp
/etc/X11/gdm/PreSession/Default: running: /usr/bin/X11/sessreg -a -w /var/log/wtmp -u /var/run/utmp -x "/var/gdm/:0.Xservers" -h "" -l ":0" "don"
/home/don/.Xclients: line 8: /home/don/.Xclients-default: No such file or directory
/home/don/.Xclients: line 8: exec: /home/don/.Xclients-default: cannot execute: No such file or directory

Any idea what I did? Thanks
