If the update keys command from Kari did not work, then did you install Sabayon
recently?  I was bitten by this before.  Sabayon does not assign a default profile to
users, so when you try and log in it cannot find a profile and you get kicked back to
the login screen.  If so either remove sabayon or open sabayon and create a profile and
assign it to all users to start.
