Client Hangs on Tip of The Day - 10.1.500.16

After updating to 10.1.500.16, one user made a change to the Home Page Layout to add a BAQ search result - that now hangs the application at login. He can no longer get past the Tip of the day screen without the client hanging and crashing.

Is there a way to back door restore his Home Page Layout to default or do it from the admin side?

Note - Temporarily setting the server to limit the BAQ result rows allowed us to get past it and delete the offending BAQ.
