Can't login into GNOME

    I was just changing icon themes, when all of a sudden the icons on the desktop and the panel disappeared.(I've been noticing that using the Themes Manager makes the Processes applet go all blue) I was still able to access the windows, but nothing much else. (It was a semi-crash, so to speak) So I rebooted the computer, but it would not go beyond the splash. I rebooted again, and entered the failsafe mode, and that's where I'm typing this message from.

    As soon as I logged in, an error message popped up
    I'm not sure what to do to get back to my original desktop. Please help.

    Ubuntu 6.10(Dualboot with now rarely used XP)|P4 1.72GHz|256MB RAM
