1.Try creating a new user via the Users& Groups GUI. AKA: John Doe.
See if you can log in from terminal as John Doe.
If John Doe ( newly created user) can log in, then your home folder
permissions have gone wonky on you,,,but,,
2.If this fails try in a terminal as root:

,, if you have changed IP addresses on the sever ( which I doubt you
have) this needs to be done,,,sometimes.
3. look in your /var/log/gdm directory at the logs here and see if
anything looks wonky, as well as the syslog.log as well.

 If I read your post correctly you stated that anyone OTHER than root
can log into the server via ssh remotely. is this correct? This doesn't
sound conducive to root being able to log in via the remote login GUI?

Let us know your findings.
