[ you know, you are allowed to hit <cr> every 70 chars or so. -wsr ]

Did you see this in a freshly made user account or did you reinstall
your home directory from backup or something?

I'd guess some dot-file is screwed up (.bashrc, .bash_profile, .profile,
etc).  Check .xsession-errors to see if the shell printed anything
before it died.
