Creating a fully functional Breezy chroot

I'm trying to setup a fully functional Breezy in a chroot inside Sid in
order to play with assistive technology. Everything works except
gnome-panel, and I'm stuck in need for help.
I proceeded this way:
- lvcreate -L2G -n breezy vg
- mkfs.jfs /dev/vg/breezy
- mount /dev/vg/breezy /chroot/breezy
- debootstrap --arch i386 breezy /chroot/breezy http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/
- chroot /chroot/breezy
- dpkg-reconfigure locales
- base-config new
- fixed gdm configuration to work along with the sid X server
- fixed /etc/fstab and resolv.conf
- "booted" the Breezy system running /etc/rcS and /etc/rc 2 (reducing
the lart-delay of /etc/rcS.d/S04udev from 60 to 5 seconds).
It's been really nice to see that the system went up fine: gdm starts,
sound works, I can login, I get (as I would expect) warnings about ACPI
and hal events not working but sudo works, I can run gnome-terminal from
Alt+F2, sudo synaptic and upgrade the system with the latest security
Now the problem (only one so far, but blocker for my efforts):
gnome-panel does not open the Applications and Desktop menus. More
correctly, it opens them for a fraction of a second, then it removes all
the entries from them. Applications and Desktop menus are unusable, the
Places menu works fine. It also constantly uses about 20% CPU.
I'd like to try to fix this problem, but I could use some clues about
where to start looking at.
Could anyone point me into some direction?
