No automatic boot to X and Xauthorization problem

My installation stopped booting into xwindows.
I have to log into a prompt and then use "startx" to get to the GUI (Gnome).
When I try to start Synaptic and some other programs, I get this message:
failed to run /usr/sbin/synaptic
unable to copy the users Xauthorization file.
I have searched and found references to this problem but not an answer.
I can start Synaptic from a terminal as root.
When I try to shutdown from Gnome, I only have the option to log out, no
Also, Is there a searchable archive of this list?
