[ubuntu-uk] no title bars on windows

I once had something similar on an old PC. However opening an application
would open top left only covering up the menu, without a title bar, stopping
you from opening another application.

A workaround on every boot was to open terminal first, type "sudo metacity
--replace" which would then realign terminal properly with a title bar under
the main menu. The permanent fix was to replace the old graphics card.

Not sure that you're experiencing exactly the same problem, but it might be
worth trying the command I used.
