I checked the log and error logs, and they show nothing! The startup
messages for each program appear, then nothing else - they just disappear
without a trace.

Either with startx or GDM, the problem is the same.  Is there a particular
place to set a path for the GNOME menu?  If there is, it must be different
from the Run command in the menu, because that works...
