This might be related to a feature that was added a couple of weeks ago. 
Try editing your /etc/trinity/kdm/kdmrc (or kdmdistrc file if it is
present) and edit this line:
to read

If the WindowManager=<something> line is not present then add it in the
[X-*-Greeter] section of the file.

Reboot and try logging in again.

Let me know if this allows you to login--it is a workaround and the real
cause of problem will need to be investigated if this works.
