You might be able to learn more about the problem if you watch the
.xsession_errors file in you home directory.  That contains all of the error
output from programs started from the GUI.  Before trying to run a program
type this from your home directory in a console window:

tail -f .xsession_errors

You could also try the same thing with /var/log/messages, which contains all
system-level error messages.
