To be honest, this just sounds like either compiz or
gnome-settings-daemon is crashing.  When it happens, do you still have
a launcher?  If you do, I think that rules out compiz.  Otherwise
"unity --reset" may help, though the usual disclaimers apply.

If possible, you might try joining #ubuntu-desktop on Freenode.
They're a helpful, friendly, clueful bunch - they instantly latched
onto a similar kind of problem I was having a while back, helped me to
work around it in the short term and pushed the fix through quickly.
