[ESS] emacsclient: ess toolbar icons disappear when server started as daemon

I am having some trouble with ess toolbar icons disappearing when I use
emacsclient as opposed to emacs under gnome 3.14?/fedora 21/emacs 21.4
(stable) or emacs 24.4.51 (devel)/ ess 14.1x (devel).

For instance,

$ emacs read.R & works fine in that ESS toolbar icons present

And so does starting an emacs server from a running emacs with server-start
and then using emacsclient

However if emacs is started in a bash script with --daemon option (named or
unnamed) then the ESS menu items don't appear on toolbar when emacsclient
is used. Alternatively,

$ emacsclient --alternate-editor="" -c read.R  and other variants such as
starting the server daemon with say
$ emacs --daemon=test1
$ emacs -s test1 -c read.R
also does not produce ESS menu items

The ESS menus are there so things are relatively easy but can anyone
suggest how I can debug this to track down the problem of disappearing
toolbar items
