Ubunti 12.04: "Dash Home" logs me out


I have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. After I ran Update Manager today, "Dash Home" logs me out when I click it in the launcher. I get kicked back to the login screen. How do I fix this?

the last 2 times this happened to me on xUbuntu 12.04 I logged into the command line and deleted the xAuthority file in the home directory and that fixed it.

Thanks! That worked.

I didn't have to go to the command line, I just opened a terminal and renamed the file to .Xauthority.bak.

ummm... Update Manager won't let me upgrade to 12.10 without an .Xauthority file...so I've copied it back, hopefully the problem won't return after the upgrade...
