Yes, that happened for me, too.

Seen that, too.  Going through disabling and re-enabling various desktop
effects options in my preferences, and sometimes logging out and back in
again, or restarting X, would often bring it back to what it should be
doing.

I'm not quite sure what you're describing, now.  I have had a problem
where occasionally applications would get minimised, and I could find no
way to un-minimise them, short of turning desktop effects off.

For these sorts of niggles, and the rather large drain on the system
while trying to use some applications, I now leave the effects off.
