Minimizing of Gnome windows not working

I just started a new session on my system and have found that when I try to minimize a window it dissapears. I use Gnome. When I click the minimize button on the window I can see the animation shrink the window down to the bottom right of screen and into oblivion. The minimizing animation used to show the window shrinking to a box in the panel which is located at the bottom of my screen. What happened? I changed no settings.

Looks like I have solved this one. I right clicked on the panel and selected;
Add to panel>Utility>Window List
and all works OK again.
What happened to cause the problem I have no idea. I did not touch the panel settings.

I had the same problem with my desktop on Redhat 2.1 AS.

Had to select Task List instead of Window List, however.
