I removed pretty both .cache directories, moved .config sub-directories
around, etc., and yet I am still unable to log in into the GNOME account
(logging in to a non-GNOME account from GDM is fine.)

I even tried upgrading the user’s profile just in case is contained
incompatible schemas or who knows what, but that didn’t help.

What extra bit of state am I missing?
