GNOME Session Manager Preventing Login

Iím having quite an annoying problem which I hope someone can help me with, it really hope I donít have to reinstall! Iím Running Fedora core 3 and after rebooting I tried to login and Iím presented with this message:

ďThe GNOME Session Manager (process 4850) has crashed due to a fatal error (segmentation fault).
When you close this dialogue all applications will close and your session will exit.
Please save all files before closing this dialogue.Ē

If I choose either close or restart application they both take me back to the login screen. I can login in to the fail safe terminal but I have no idea how to fix this, can you wipe the last session or something like that.

Thanks in advance for any help,
