Hi,

every time I come back to my office desktop after I have used it remotely, the system does not show running programs in the task bar, fails to show the Gadgets and presents a bunch of visual artefacts such as popup menu remnants. I normally reboot at that point. This problem started recently.

If you log off and login again the problem disappears, but it's just a workaround
