After logging into Gnome if the gnome-panel has crashed, hit Ctrl+Alt+F11 and login to the console.
$ killall gnome-panel
Logout of the console.
Hit Ctrl+Alt+F7.

If the gnome-panel has not restarted, then clear any error messages, right-click on the desktop and select "Open Terminal". In the terminal, type:
$ gnome-panel &
After gnome-panel starts, logout of Gnome normally.
This should save your session.

I tried this and it still would error, I uninstalled gnome and installed kde. Gnome is a piece of garbage if it breaks itself! :D KDE is prettier anyways.
