maybe you have 2 virtual workspaces set up, and
the taskbar is splitting the apps by workspace?

If it is showing only half, you might not have a lot of room on the task bar. It will compress the running app buttons to a smaller size if you have a lot running or you have not given it much room. Try sliding the space a little either way, or closing a couple apps. Does it show them then? Maybe I am barking up the wrong tree, but just trying to help
