Nearly each time I reboot my machine, the system panel and integrated app menus fail to load.

At a terminal, when issuing 'unity --reset', I get the following errors:

The procedure hangs at this point.

Thank you for trying, titusjaka. However your post shows no command to try. –  Gregory R. Pace Nov 8 '12 at 23:35
    
just log out, change the launcher to gnome (2 or 3, it doesn't matter), then type your password and log in. run terminal (alt+ctrl+t) and type unity --reset –  titusjaka Nov 9 '12 at 1:34
