one day you wake up... and everything's gone!

Hi there!

I had a somehow similar problem to the one you talked about. In my case 
I had an unproprer shutdown and after the restart everything was messed 
up. The desktop was uggliest all panel applets gone, etc.
I then by some mysterious coincidence checked my system clock and it 
said 1.1.1904. I turned it back to the right date and the desktop was as 
pretty as before. I'm writing this mail on the same laptop.
So if it's this problem in your case, it's easy solved. Check the time 
and date in Windows XP and see if it is set correct. If it is a date in 
the past, this is the problem. Set it to today's date and boot up in 
your beautifull Ubuntu desktop again !

Hope this helps, Rainer
