I would like to propose a test case:
I am affected by this bug but have discovered that if at the login screen, I delay a minute or so before logging in, the menus appear normally. However if I do not delay logging in; the menus never appear.

I don't have specific timing details, but delaying long enough to pour a mug of tea always results in working menus.

This would support the race condition suggested above.

The test case then: is so login as quickly as possible after the login screen appears using perhaps a NULL password or enabling the "login automatically" feature.
