Fedora 10: VMware crashes shortly after opening. Dbus to blame?

Hi all, I've been using VMware on my F10 machine for over a month now but today I went to expand the disk size of my virtual Windows XP system and my Fedora system locked up in the process of growing the virtual hdd. I was forced to cut the power and restart. Upon restart, I successfully grew my virtual hdd however, now when I open VMware, it crashes within thirty seconds.

My error from when I open it via terminal is...
process 16855: arguments to dbus_move_error() were incorrect, assertion "(dest) == NULL || !dbus_error_is_set ((dest))" failed in file dbus-errors.c line 278.
This is normally a bug in some application using the D-Bus library.
  D-Bus not built with -rdynamic so unable to print a backtrace
I've been on Google for a while now and haven't come up with anything and I really don't know where to go from here. I've already tried reinstalling VMware, twice. Maybe downgrading dbus, if that is actually the problem? If any more info is needed, please let me know. Any help or a point in the right direction is awesome. Thanks!

Well I deleted my VMware preferences file in my home directory /.vmware/ and everything is fine now. Go figure.
