Close Shotwell, and open GConf editor.

In Gnome it's under Applications->System tools->Configuration Editor

In GConf editor:
Open apps->Shotwell->Sharing

Click Facebook, then delete the session_key, session_secret, uid, and user_name keys.

Now restart Shotwell and your credentials should be gone.

Also, do you know what steps you took that made the session key invalid?

Please let us know if this happens again, if there's a bug here we need to fix it.
