I created a VirtualBox guest host using the 9/8/10 Maverick LiveCD.  It
ran well.  Yesterday I received notification of updates available.
Rather than run KPackageKit I opened a Konsole and used apt-get.  About
274 packages were updated.  I rebooted and my KDE desktop appeared and
ran normally.  A few minutes later KPackageKit said 254 packages were
available.  I let it do the updates and rebooted when it told me to.  I
was greeted with the login screen loop.  None of the usual remedies
would fix it.

So, also yesterday, 9/15/10, I downloaded the Maverick daily livecd with
the intention of installing it over the existing Maverick guest OS on
VirtualBox.  Booting the LiveCD up within VirtualBox using the existing
Maverick guest OS I was greeted with the Maverick LiveCD menu.

I selected the install  option straight away. An "ubi-partmon failed with an exit code 141".  A retry failed.  Ignoring the failure resulted in a sterile install, with the progress bar missing, and it never progress beyond the final ad graphic.  I canceled and the system proceeded to go to the LiveCD KDE desktop.  While still running the LiveCD KDE desktop I installed gparted and created a  bootable EXT4 partition, erasing the Maverick install that had resided there.  Then I ran the install option from the desktop icon.   Upon completion of the install I rebooted and was greeted again with the login screen loop.  Today, 9/16/10, I booted into a console screen, thinking there would be some additional downloads which would resolve the situation.   I did the apt-get update & dist-upgrade.  After between 20-30 downloads installed I rebooted.  The login screen loop remains.  The contents of the .xsession-errors file is copied below (only because this bug system allows only on attachment per post)
