In order to recover from this condition, I needed to do:
$ kill `ps auxww|grep [h]amster | awk '{print $2}'`

This bug was fixed in the package hamster-applet - 2.32.1-0ubuntu4

---------------
hamster-applet (2.32.1-0ubuntu4) oneiric; urgency=low

  * 05-dont-traceback-on-quit.patch: don't traceback if saving to gconf fails,
    but instead indicate to the caller that there was an error (LP: #816460)
