They're new to me!

Also, the keyboard mapping is completely off - delete is mapped to a letter key, lots of letter keys are mapped to numbers, etc. Also, many times the menu gets stuck - I'll open it and nothing is highlighted when I roll my mouse over it and clicking just closes the menu, but often works fine the next time I try something.
Is this using Xpra sessions? If so, can you try with jpeg compression?
Holding the modified key (which is 'Shift' by default) when clicking on
the start menu entries will allow you to choose the session type and
their options (ie: jpeg).
Have you tried using NX or VNC for the sessions? Does it help?

I'll try to test this particular combination when I get a chance.
