I removed ~/.cache and ~/.config/gnome*, and I moved .xsession out of
the way, but I still cannot start GNOME.  GDM comes up fine, but after
inputing my credentials the mouse cursor skips to the bottom right
corner and then I’m thrown back into the GDM login screen.

There is nothing relevant in /var/lib, I think.

I’ve also tried to do this in a VM, but everything is terribly slow, so
I can’t get past the GDM login screen.

I’d be happy if other people could test this, too.  If you have
suggestions on how I could debug this, please do let me know.
