No idea about this.  Have there been any other reports elsewhere?  Did
you have a play with anything that was followed by this?

I'm speculating here, but try selecting the session you want when you
login (and making a successful one the default), in case that's
something to do with it.

I'd also take a look at the Sessions dialogue,

System > Preferences > Sessions

to see what's loading at boot time and if any changes are needed.

As for the workspace icons, just put them back (right click on the
panel, select 'Add to Panel' and drag and drop it wherever you want it
to be).
