I've seen this happen as well, and it wasn't disk related for me either.  What I did find though was that there was a correlation between having esd enabled and the locking up on login.  

Try editing:

in the user's home directory (from either root or a console login) and set event_sounds and enable_esd to false.  They try logging in again.

If this works please let me know...
