The problem is very straightforward, and while the initial report in this thread could obviously have been expanded a bit, it won't add much.

Upon upgrading to Lucid, the window controls for all windows were reordered (max / min / close rather than min / max / close as they were previously) and moved to the left side of the window. This rearrangement persists through restarts, and is unchanged regardless of whether new themes are applied. The controls still work fine, they are just on the other side of the window and not in the expected order. If you would like a screenshot illustrating the above I can provide it, but really... they're just on the left. If you need any additional information, please let me know.
