Thanks for information and links. I'm really novice in Ubuntu. As for package, i'm using Ubuntu Desktop 9.04, kernel linux 2.6.28-12-generic, and as for graphic environment, i'm using gnome. In the description of bug reproducing I had made a mistake. Under "Dashboard" i mean "Desktop". So, for reproducing bug, you should open Desktop, click any file and press F2 button. After that, on keyboard press "Print Screen" button and in appeared menu click "Save" button.
In my work, sometimes I have to do a lot of screenshots. My screenshots are stored in the Desktop. How I was surprised when one day I made a 7 screenshots, and suddenly did not find them on Desktop. It turned out that before doing the screenshots, I began to rename file to Desktop, and forgot to complete the renaming. And when I have finished renaming the file, all my screenshots have appeared on the Desktop. Now, I hope my explanation more accurate. =)

that's not a bug, an update would mean a refresh and it would change your focus for the file you are editing, usually changing a name takes a few seconds and the refresh can wait until it's updated
