UPDATE

i hit cntrl alt F1 to get into console and log in that user, ls -a confirms the file doesn't exist. so i switched to root and copied the .ICEauthority in root's home directory over to the new user's home dir. i then changed ownership of that file to the user, and i still can't log in.

does anyone have a workaround for this issue??
