Default Unable to log in to KDE4 using Hardy

I tried installing KDE4 to evaluate under Hardy.

I log in correctly at the usual prompt, selecting KDE4 as the chosen session.
A KDE4 splash screen appears. The usual series of icons appears as it goes
through the motions of setting up, and then...

Back to the login prompt.

So, clearly something is wrong. Has anybody seen this before? And is there a
way I can get a trace of the progress of the login sequence?

You should have the file .xsession-errors in your home directory where
you could look at, else the files in /var/log/ of course.

But... I encountered a similar behaviour with my wife's PC running
Dapper. Her root partition was full at 100% so KDE wasn't able to
create it's temporary session files. So you might want to check
whether your partitions are perhaps out of space. Go to a textconsole
and type in:
df -h
that will get you the filesystem stats.
