login failures today

I have a weird failure on FC5T3. It was fine on Friday, but
today Login fails, for gnome/kde/xfce, and also gnome safe, but not for
a terminal failsafe. I can still ssh in from a remote machine, and watch
the login, but it just hangs after the gnome splash is brought up but
before any icons appear on it.
I made a new account - and that works fine. So it is connected to my
account settings. But removing .zshrc doesn't help.
If I 'su' from the new account I see an error:
find: cannot get current directory: Permission denied
but it is trying to examine a directory called '.'
if I 'ssh -Y XXX at YYY' I can log in OK, but if I try to start
firefox I get:
*** glibc detected *** /usr/lib/firefox-22.214.171.124/firefox-bin: realloc():
next size: 0x0a1d1550 ***
followed by a backtrace.
I don't want to scrub the account completely. Can anyone suggest how I
might fix this?
