When this occurs does the window decoration also vanish ?

I'm not sure what means decoration. The bar across the top remains grayed out, and has words (which are clickable) but none of the usual click-targets to close or change size.

This sounds like a window manager crash, such as the ones people report when using the Nvidia binary driver and with the graphical effect stuff turned on.

I've been suspecting that, because of the window bars; and when things are really bad, I've sometimes gotten what was clearly no window manager known to me -- or even what may be none, doing nothing but demanding userid and password, over and over; even a reboot in that case works only with the reset button or power button -- and getting out of it on next boot requires a re-install.

I was thinking that it might be related to this:
