Gnome theme switches unprovoked

Bug Description

Left system logged in overnight, in the morning the network icon had switched from an image of the jack to two computers, the upper right corner had switched from red power button to green running man, window title bars were gray, and every running program was suddenly using a different font (larger). This has happened twice in the past 3 months. I do normally leave myself logged in permanently, and don't do anything unusual with the theme, although I do run a program to switch the wallpaper every 10 minutes. Ubuntu 9.10.

Forgot to mention, logout/login fixes it, a reboot is not required.

This bug report was filed against an old version of Ubuntu.
Can you confirm whether this is still an issue in natty?

If you don't mind, it would be very helpful if you could update the bug
report in launchpad to 'Fix Released' if it is no longer an issue for
you, or if it is still occurring under natty, please tag the bug 'natty'
so it's easier for us to track.
