Bouncing programs icons keep bouncing for ages


Ok it was pretty difficult to describe this problem in a short title. What happens is when i click a program on my desktop (openoffice being the first to display this problem), the bouncing icon stays on long afer the program has loaded, maybe 20 seconds or so. To the point where i can have opened a program and closed it again, and the icon is still happily bouncing away.

I'm running Ubuntu Hoary for i386.

Also, i used to have a news icon in my Firefox toolbar, (i thought it was installed by my Noia theme). One day i clicked a link in Thunderbird but when Firefox opened it was using the default theme. I re-installed Noia but no longer have my news icon, neither can i find it!!

Please help.
