Log out of X and switch to a text console with <CTRL><ALT><F1> and login
there.  Now do 'ls -a' and look for directories like 

These contain your personal gnome settings.  You could try renaming these
which should return gnome to a default state.  If that works, you should
look within those directories for any settings you might want to keep though
it would probably be easier just to re-create the settings within Gnome.
In particular, .gnome2/keyrings contains your gnome keyring so you may be
asked to set that up again and to remember all of your ssh / wireless
