You state that you "rsynced the homes back into place"; are the home 
directories ownership and permissions correct (does the user own their own home 
directory with read-write-execute permissions) after this process? It sounds 
like the choices at login can't be saved because the user may not be able to 
write the info to their home directory. Just a guess.
