[csw-users] GNOME 2.8.1/Solaris Works for Root but Not Other Users

I just installed GNOME 2.8.1 for Solaris on a Sun Blade 100 running Solaris 9.
When logging in as root, GNOME 2.8.1 comes up.  When logging in under my regular
username, the login screen goes black for a few seconds, then it flickers and
the normal DT hourglass appears and the dtlogin screen reappears.  I used the
'pkg-get install gnome' command per the Blastwave web page.

I ran /usr/bin/gnome-cleanup, and removed the directories it found.  I removed
.dt and several older directories of that nature, but to no avail.  I even tried
to copy the various .gnome* directories from / that appeared to have been
generated for root, but to no avail.  GNOME 2.0 still works correctly, FWIW.

TIA for any assistance you can provide.
