I'm also having the same problem. After entering login and password, screen turns blank and nothing happened.
Looking at the logs, I have the same errors.

I had the sames isues with 11.10 just after removing the KDE standard bluetooth manager.
I think this is related to a misconfiguration or abusive removal of some KDE key packages.
After reinstalling some of thoses key packages I could login again just has before.

So if it happens to you, try reinstalling every KDE key package that were altered by any previous uninstall / upgrade operation.

You can get a list of thoses packages by looking at the apt log files in /var/log/apt directory.
