The situation above is quite similar to a problem I have that only occurs periodically. Using the
does bring back the title bar with the min/max and close buttons. The same problem occurs periodically when I tried out Linux Mint (both 9 and 10).
I assume it has something to do with a window x manager, but I don't know where to attach the problem.
Any ideas are very welcome
The machine is a HP dx5150 SSF (AMD64)
