Same here. Happens for me upon upgrade to natty. My user-defined session apparently has applets that natty upgrade broke -- the problem resolves if I use the fresh "ubuntu classic" session (how can I isolate which?). We should look into this regression (users will log in and be presented with blank screen -> panic!)
