Same happened to me. 

I've swapped to command line (Alt+Ctrl+F1) and it gave some gnome error 
message. To me it looked like it decided to replace KDE with GNOME. ps -ax 
showed a lot of gnome processes running. In the end I've made a backup of my 
user stuff and did a fresh install. I've written down the error message, but 
it's still on my PC at home.
