Thanks for that - it let me get rid of the two old launchctl items and put them back in place correctly. However, it hasn't fixed the problem with gnome-session failing to start - I'm still getting the 'operation not permitted' on 'launch_msg( checkin )', and the Xserver keeps on failing and restarting until I change the name of the .x11init.d folder to something else.
