That would help. It just seemed like the error was coming from GDM,
though. But, yes, you can debug gnome-session as described here:

If you have d-bus, I would highly suggest using that form. If
gnome-session seems to work successfully, then you're back to
debugging gdm.

I read the link you provided but didn't see anything on debugging.  From what I can see gnome is running OK but I still can't get it to run orca.  The output on the console after ctl+alt+backspace looks and suggests gnome-session was running:

The application 'gnome-session' lost its connection to the display :0.0;
most likely the X server was shut down or you killed/destroyed
the application.
