I saw that too.  I lost those gadgets, and had to hold down ALT while I
clicked in the middle of windows to move them asside.  I had a
confirmation dialogue box waiting for me behind another window.  The
computer hadn't frozen, but I had things in the way that weren't
responding to input.  The top-of-screen menubar still worked.

I've not uninstalled/re-installed things to sort it out.  Just what I
said above, and I did a CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE to restart X, the first few
