[ubuntu-uk] Desktop effects

Since I upgraded to Feisty last month, I have suffered a minor hiccough
whilst booting up.

When logging in, the Ubuntu desktop opens but without my four workspace
icons at the bottom right of the screen, and any filer window appears
without the minimise, maximise and close icons at the top right of the
screen.  To counteract this I have to open System>Preferences>Desktop
effects, click on enable desktop effects, then click on Use previous
settings which brings back the missing icons.

The problem is that I have to do this every time I boot up.  Does this
happen to anyone else and if so, how have you cured it?
