Login problem after dist-upgrade

I have an old Sony desktop (900MHz AMD Duron , 512 MB RAM, CD/DVD ROM, 40 GB
IDE HD) that worked fine with 9.10 but fails to successfully bring up the
desktop after a dist-upgrade to 10.04.1.  When the correct password is
entered at the GUI prompt, it begins to display the desktop panels and then
cycles back to the login prompt.  When an incorrect password is entered, it
correctly indicates an authentication failure on the login prompt.

Any ideas about what broke?
