I have this problem under KDE, caused by kde-window-manager (iirc) crashing. Not sure what the equivelant is under Gnome.

You can restart it by running compiz if you have compiz effects enabled (iirc).

To actually resolve the problem i'd make sure your packages are up-to-date (sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade)

its actually a case of your window decorator crashing, depending on what you use (emerald, gtk-window-decorator, heliodor etc) you can generall restart it by running the command <window decorator> --replace
ie I personally use emerald, and if this occurs can restart it with emerald --replace

I would suggest doing so in the run dialog (alt-F2) rather then a shell, as it can result in a fair bit of unnecessary output

A simple alt+F2 emerald --replace or metacity --replace will do the job.

I had the same problem on Gutsy using compiz for a while.
Hardy seems to have fixed the issue for me though.

Edit: improved readability - Even I couldn't comprehend what I initially wrote!
