Here's the situation: Since I upgraded to 10.4 LTS, my gnome session unexpectedly ends: it logs off. This does not happen every time, but rather randomly. I've tried to force this event, suspecting it was some kind of unfortunate key-mapping thing: alt-enter, shift-enter, enter-end, etc. But no, I cant reproduce it.

Does this happen to anyone? I've googled around, but haven't found any solution.

Update: Here's the last part of my .xsession-errors file

error 0 (Success) on X server :1.0.

the contents of your ~/.xsession-errors file is the first place to look for clues. edit them into your post if you'd like a second (or fifteenth) pair of eyes on them. –  msw Sep 30 '10 at 3:14
    
@msw Thanks, i've added some info. –  Tom Sep 30 '10 at 4:03
    
Perhaps this has something to do with changing permissions of the /home/user/.ICEauthority file. –  jumbli Sep 30 '10 at 5:31
    
It looks like gnome is dying because your Xserver died. Is there a reason you are running on DISPLAY :1.0? This could be relevant as it is an uncommon configuration. The next step is looking at /var/log/Xorg.1.log to see why the server dies (sorry to go step by step, but each step yields new hypotheses). –  msw Sep 30 '10 at 11:35
    
@msw No, no reason at all. I'll check out Xorg.1.log later today, thank you –  Tom Sep 30 '10 at 13:21

Look in /var/crash to see if X or something crashed. Check dmesg for any kernel faults. Look at the last dozen lines or so of /var/log/Xorg.0.log for evidence of an X crash in the form of a backtrace. Check your /var/log/gdm/ logs as well for backtraces or error messages from X.
