I'm using GDM, and for some reason when it starts, all I see is the time and date in the middle of the screen. I can move my mouse, and click everything on the screen and I can't seem to find any mechanism to login.

Also, running startx doesn't work either. I looked at Xorg.0.log and didn't see anything exciting: http://bpaste.net/show/444435/
