Hi Paul,

I found that, on occasion under 10.04.x, everything would change
unexpectedly.  It would seem that some application or other had caused
a problem with Compiz and so Compiz bombed out, so my session had
reverted to plain ol' Metacity.  Running "compiz --replace &" sorted
things out nicely.
