Solaris 10 CDE hang issue


I am facing some issues on Solaris 10 (SPARC 5.10 Generic_118833-36). The issue is when I try to connect/login through CDE it hangs (hangs at login screen). I tried connecting thourgh VNC client also but that also not helped. I had done no configuration change or modified any kernel parameter but this suddenly happened on my Solaris 10 server. This machine is in production.

Below is the error message that appears when I try to login from CDE environment on this server

"/usr/dt/bin/ttsession[1110]: [ID 161973 daemon.error] t_connect(): An event requires attention".

Also if I try to open Gnome/Java environment on this machine it works fine. The only issue is with the CDE session. The CDE vesion installed is 1.6 on my server.
I tried googling this error but most of the search suggested to install patch 119955-05 for CDE but this also not helped. Please help.

Regards, kunal
