I would have said that it probably _is_ caused by your deletion of
your home directory files.  I had very similar problems yesterday
after making alterations to my home. After every error message, I
tried to put right whatever it was complaining about, but things just
got worse.  I could login to LXDE, but not to Trinity.  So it
obviously _was_ at the level of Trinity, not the system.

Finally I solved Trinity's refusal even to open by creating another
user and starting afresh.  I now have a functioning TDE again, but
have not yet transferred my emails and folders, which is what I was
trying to do when the problem arose.

I have managed this on my netbook, which is Squeeze + Trinity, by
installing Wicd, which I prefer anyway.
