When I start a newly-built Cinnamon desktop, all that appears is an undecorated dialog showing:
Code:
Cinnamon just crashed.  You are currently running in fallback mode.

Do you want to restart Cinnamon?
As per this, I rebuilt spidermonkey and cjs; no change.

What next?

I don't know cinnamon, but you can post ~/.xsession-errors and ~/.cinnamon/glass.log files (I read that the logs are contained in these files) with wgetpaste?

Looking in .xsession-errors, I found some and made three changes, one or more of which has fixed the problem:
  • added the user to group video
  • deleted all the cinnamon directories under $HOME such as .config/cinnamon
  • rebuild media-libs/clutter
It all looks pretty good to me. I hope wifey likes it.
