As far as I can tell this is because the /etc/X11/dm/Sessions/45TDE.desktop file isn't being reliably generated/installed. Do the files in /etc/X11/dm/Sessions/  get generated after installation nothing in this folder appears to exist in any of the RPM packages? I ended up writing my own 45TDE.desktop file to fix this so that I could log in.

Hello, about the session stuff, it is handled by a specific script in 
It seems to work on my test virtual machines.

About the menu entries, I think this is due to having an existing 
.trinity directory.
Maybe a clean new user would have less problem. At least, on my quick 
testing, I did not notice menu problem on a new user.
