At least we can be sure that something went completely wrong with
this weekend's sources. I had similar symptoms (X crashing, basic
commands not working), but was lucky enough, not to be completely
locked out. With some help from this list I could rebuild the OS.
X and Metacity work again, but Nautilus still crashes.

Perhaps this gives you a little more than the power button.
