hoary doesnt allow me to login

I installed hoary preview yesterday.It is good but only for the first boot.From the next time onwards every thing till the gdm works fine,when i enter my login and password the splash wont come it just stops there it doesnt even come back to gdm.,some files like .xsession errors and .Xauthority .ICE**** are created in my home. I am posting this from failsafe terminal.I forgot to say that even the failsafe gnome also doesnt allow me to login.

that happened to me a long time ago. i'm not sure why.

i think i deleted that .ICEauthority file or whatever and it worked just fine after that. try that, and if it still doesn't work maybe try doing apt-get update ; apt-get upgrade again.

you'd probably get a better response over on
