I don't use ebuilds for e so don't know which e17 version you had originally but it sounds like r0.17.4 - in that version you need to remove the check mark from "Show Splash..." under "Settings -> Look -> Startup" since there's a bug in that release which causes what you describe (having to delete fresh ~/.e dirs).

given you're also having menu probs what I might do is erase ~/.e once more, uncheck "Show..." if needed and see if not selectively deleting things from ~/.e fixes the menu trouble too. the other thing you can do is locate one of the non-working menu items (/usr/share/applications, /usr/local/share/applications, ~/.local/share/applications) and add some logging to "Exec=..." such as "| tee /tmp/log" then look at the output.
