    you probably logged into KDE/Gnome or other as root, right?

    it often happens (among other terrible stuff that can happen if you do
    that) that the access permissions of /home/[user]/.ICEauthority gets
    changed from what it should be to root ownership..

    if that happens it becomes *impossible* to log in as that user..

    do NOT log into KDE/Gnome or other as root...ever..
