yum upgrade F8-F9 Gnome panels causing mischief

I yup upgraded from F8 to F9 following the directions on the wiki.
Here's what I did

Xfce works perfectly fine as do all of my usual programs.  When I try to
login to Gnome I am stuck with the background and no panels.  I can move
my mouse around and I can switch desktops which rotates the cube (so
compiz is working)  I cannot right-click and get the desktop menu.

If I run Gnome/Openbox, the panels load and I can use them for a few
seconds.  Then two error boxes pop up.  They are completely whited out
so I have no idea what they say.  Once they pop up, the panels become
unusable.  So I think I have some program perhaps loading into the panel
which is causing problems.  

Without nuking my .gnome directory, is there anything else I can do?
