Hi there!
I had similar problem , when I updated XFree version .... ,my problem was
Xsession script which was also updated to a default one,hence I couldnot log
on to anything else but Kde and Gnome and I use Xfce wm.After reinstaling
backed up copy of Xsession everything is back to normal.You did back up your
previous Xfree setting and directories,did you?
Read Howto`s XFree updating.
See ya Alan
