    I haven't seen that message, but this is what I would try. Press CTRL-ALT-F2 to get to a console text-mode login prompt. (CTRL-ALT-F7 or maybe -F8 takes you back to the graphical login.)

    Try to login as root.
    If you succeed, the df command will show you how full each disk is.
    Look toward the end of /var/log/messages and /var/log/syslog for anything interesting.
    Verify that your username has a directory under /home owned by that user.
