...or simply move them, while logged in as yourself from a console,

restart.

Also, go to /var/log/ and blow away your old tmp files.  You may have
a
stray lock laying around.

Another thought.  Are you using quotas?  If that user has used up his
quota limit on the home drive, X won't start and it can't even write the
errors since the ~/.xsession-errors file is essentially write
protected.

I am getting in the habit of running quota and df first for every X
problem.  It saves me pounding my head against the wall after
troubleshooting for an hour and finding that it was a VERY simple
problem of no space on /home or (more usually) /tmp.

My $0.02.
