Question Permanent Widget Layer - Ubuntu 10.04

I've got here a real poser.

I was using Ubuntu Tweak and configuring the custom shortcuts (such as showing the widget layer upon moving the mouse to the top right corner). Anyway, I removed that shortcut and closed the program. The problem is that Ubuntu is still in the widget layer without a way to exit it. Programs don't open, shortcuts don't work, restarts are unsuccessful, and absolutely nothing does anything.

Apart from a full reinstallation, are there any suggestions as to what I can do?
