Adam: which window manager are you using? If it's compiz, are you using viewport or workspaces? Also, do you have a multihead setup?

I'm using Metacity.

I use an external monitor plugged into the VGA out port on my laptop. The laptop's built in screen is disabled via xorg.conf and is not used.

Just had this bug in Hardy when I copied and icon from the menu to my desktop.

Running Compiz on a x86_64 hardy install.

I had just installed avant-window-navigator and was setting up launchers for it, I had already setup a pidgin launcher, but did not have pidgin displayed on my desktop, the error occurred when I clicked on the gnome-panel icon for pidgin.

Running Compiz on a x86_64 hardy install as well.

I installed AWN, removed a Panel, and the gnome pane crashed. I clicked on "Report error.." and landed here...
