Not sure. Check out 

1. $HOME/.xsession-errors file
2. Run gnome is "debug" mode

	a. Start X using "xinit" command. This should open a terminal 
	   window on screen
	b. Run gnome as shown below. Read through the message printed
	   on screen.

		# /usr/bin/dbus-launch --exit-with-session gnome-session
