Fedora 23 don't allow me to re-login after logout

That's it. After I logout I can't login back. I type the password but just got a blink, then the login screen is back again to type my password. I have to reboot to login again. Besides, even the Nautilus that's shipped with Fedora, keeps crashing over and over.

How can I debug this?

The first thing I'd do is create a second user, log out and try to log in with that user instead. If it works, log out and see if you can get back into that account. If the other account works properly, it's something to do with your regular account; if not, it's something to do with gdm, nautilus or possibly both.

You can switch to another tty (E.g: Ctrl + Alt + F3), login with your account and restart the gdm (sudo systemctl restart gdm). Finally, try to login again with your account.
