I experienced the same bug on my MSI Wind U100 last night. Fortunately I found this bug report, but it still took me some 2 hours to recover, trying all the various suggestions and rebooting. In the end, I got recovery typing the command: gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/session/required_components_list --type list --list-type=string ["windowmanager","panel"] while in netbook mode. I have also installed the updated desktop-switcher file provided by Neil, but ran out of steam last night. I'll try it tonight and report back. Thanks to Scott for reporting this bug, and Neil for putting all this effort into coming up with a recovery and for issuing a fix.
