I've had an odd problem like this with Mandrake 7.2...
It turned out that /etc/X11/gdm/Sessions/Gnome was not executable. I
chmod a+x ed it, but upon reboot it was non executable agian. 

It turned out that /etc/rc.d/init.d/mandrake_everytime was running
/usr/sbin/fndSession which didn't like the Ximian install for some
reason... I commented out that line in mandrake_everytime, ran chmod a+x
Gnome again and havn't seen the problem since.

I suppose this is bug that should be fixed. I'm sory I didn't report it
earlier (The exact same thing happened to my girlfriend's computer when
she installed Ximian so it is reproducable :-)
