Terminal Server 2008 Redirected Start Menu is Empty

I have created a GPO to redirect the start menu for groups of term server users.  The start menu ends up empty.  Event viewer shows no error.  I have the start menus shared on another server.  The structure is \TSstart\Programs\<various application sub folders>  Why would the user get an empty start menu?

From the http://blogs.dirteam.com/blogs/sanderberkouwer/archive/2008/09/02/centralized-start-menu-management.aspx:

•Remove common program groups from Start Menu
Located in the User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Start Menu & Taskbar portion of a default Group Policy Object, this policy setting disables the usage of the shortcuts in the Start Menu located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.
   
•Start Menu
Located in the User Configuration\Windows\Settings\Folder Redirection portion of a default Group Policy Object, this policy settings when double clicked allows to redirect the Start Menu for useraccounts in any of the three ways:
¿Basic - Redirect everyone's folder to the same location
¿Advanced - Specify locations for various user groups
¿Not configured

I enabled the first Group Policy setting and configured the second setting to do a basic redirection to redirect to the following location: \\ServerName\Shared\StartMenu
