driving me crazy, is that if I go CTRL ALT F2, I can login with no problem
at all, so I've not changed my password or anything. Any help appreciated;
thanking you in advance.

Its likely just seeming like you are not able to login. Its probably
something in your ~/.config configuration causing x to crash or not load
and dump you back out at the login. You can try removing or renaming things
randomly til you find it.. I would rename the gnome specific configs or
just move them out of your /home directory temporarily to test... cheers!
