Okay, I think I've figured this one out. It was a corrupted gdm.conf file.
I downgraded to gdm-2.0
I can now login normally but get a warning message "invalid number of
arguments falling back to default session" when I login. Session happens
as per normal. Only hassle is the Jaunty login screen which I always
hated. Now I am going to try and upgrade again. Wish Back in Time had a
better interface for selecting exactly which part of the system needs to
be recovered, because I am sure there is an easier way to avoid this in
the first place. Never a dull day in Ubuntuland, that's for sure.
