I may have found something...?

Below is the contents of /var/log/gdm/:0

Is there a clue down there in the last line?

I've googled a bit for various combinations of the following:
MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE, gdm and "client 3 rejected from local host"

Somebody in the Ukraine had a problem like mine, but my Ukrainian
is a bit rusty...
