Ok, problem resolved, and this message is for the archives. I am running
Crux 2.0 and for some reason the /tmp directory was read-only to all
but root, which prevented me from logging in in the first place. Gnome
would throw an error and ask me if I wanted to see the .Xsession errors.
I resolved that issue prior to making a post here. After I chmodded the
/tmp dir, that's when it allowed me to log in and I experienced the halt

After wrestling with it for a while, I decided to try and clear out the
/tmp directory. I have no idea why, but I think that's what did it. The
wierd part is after I cleared it (while running gnome) things stopped
working correctly. I think GDM stored a file that holds socket information
or something in there because Gnome lost communication with GDM. So I
rebooted and everything worked fine, I could log in and have been able
to since yesterday. So it looks like that's th issue. Thank you.
