[kde-freebsd] KDE4.2 on 7.1 RELEASE fails to log in

Hello List!

I just did a fresh install of 7.1, loaded up KDE4.2, the Nvidia  
driver, compiz-fusion and a few other odds and ends. Life was good the  
first time I logged in (though I couldn't get compiz to start, but I'm  
not really concerned about that), so I installed a few more things  
(Pidgin, Thunderbird, Firefox, yakuake, etc), got to personalizing my  
settings, etc. Anyway, I had to shut down and reboot (for entirely  
unrelated reasons), and when it came back up, KDM will no longer log  
me in. I type my password, the loading bar appears, goes about  
halfway, the screen flashes to black, and I am back at the KDM login  
window. Any idea what might be causing this, or where I might be able  
to find the appropriate logs to get an idea what might be happening?

Some notes:
-The dbus daemon is enabled and running
-hald is enabled and running
-I have a hostname set
-There are no errors appearing in TTY0 (Previously I have had this  
happen when hald was not on).

Any thoughts? Thank you very much for any help!
