do you have a firewall, and if so, are you sure it does not block that

The same goes for tcpwrappers, so check /etc/hosts.allow and

I third thing that comes to my mind is /etc/hosts? Is it set up properly,

::1                     localhost               localhost                  myhost

Does the problem go away, if you create a test user and try to log into
Gnome? If so, then some of your ~/.* configuration files/directories are
hosed, and you should be able to fix the problem by moving them away.

If all of the above fails, please provide more information, e.g. FreeBSD
version, list of installed packages (ls /var/db/pkg), the login manager
you use. An excerpt from the log you mentioned might also be useful.
