Please, can you precise which pgAdmin III version you are running and if 
you are using a Debian package or a self build? If using a package can 
you precise the version of the package (dpkg -l pgadmin3 should suffice)?

So, I'm gonna try ;)

I suppose you did the "mandatory" checks ?
Do other apps launch ok?
what gives echo $DISPLAY?
what if you launch a gnome-terminal from the terminal you just opened?
can you provide a log file with the strace of the pgadmin3 launch?
$ script pipo.log
$ strace -f pgadmin3
....<bla bla bla>
$ exit

Gzip the file and send it to us, that may help to figure out what's 
going on.
