I have this too.

Happens when gdm's autologon or timedlogon is true.

What happens is when system is booting gdm is auto/timed loging the user in and the "could not update ICEauthority file" error appears, if OK is clicked I get another message (usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 has quit with state 256) and then just an empty wallaper.

To get in to the system I move to a free text tty and run "sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart". When gdm restarts everything is ok.
