Help - reset of preferences

I believe that while I was booting down my G5 mac, I interrupted the FileVault process. The next time I turned on my mac, the system had lost all of my preferences. All my safari bookmarks were gone, iCal was blank, iTunes didn't show my music, iPhoto didn't indicate I had any photos, the dock had reverted back to its original configuration, etc...

I didn't change the name on my account (short name) and my library seems to be the same as before. I tried repairing permissions, used DiskWarrior, disk utility and still nothing. I know I still have the basic files/data (photos, music, etc...), but when I run those programs its like they don't recognize the underlying files.

Any suggestions??
