Here is the results of the strace tests:

[jim ltsp bin]$ ps aux|grep gnome-panel | grep jim
jim       4053  0.4  0.4  23028  9788 ?        Ssl  12:33   0:00 gnome-panel
--sm-client-id default2
jim       4152  0.0  0.0   3760   672 pts/2    S+   12:35   0:00 grep gnome-panel
[jim ltsp bin]$ strace -p 4053
Process 4053 attached - interrupt to quit
nanosleep({0, 200000000}, {0, 3214804184}) = 0
fcntl64(29, F_SETLK, {type=F_WRLCK, whence=SEEK_CUR, start=0, len=0}

Nothing more happens when left/right clicking on the menus.  It just sits idle.

Home directory is set correctly in /etc/passwd and /home is mounted with the
users folders and is also completely browseable and editable.  It even mounts
the correct user home directory when logging in.  I can browse the file
directories like /usr/bin/gnome-terminal and run apps.  I can edit, delete and
add files.  Just no menus.
