That sounds like a Compiz or perhaps a window decorator problem.  You
do have Visual Effects turned on, don't you?  If so, try installing
ccsm  (compiz config settings manager) and fusion-icon.  Access it by:
Menu>System Tools>Compiz fusion Icon.
That will put an icon on your toolbar.  Right click it and choose,
"Reload Window manager."  If that doesn't work out try, "Select Window
Manager."   Trying the, Select Window Decorator," may work if you have
more than one installed. (I like Emerald but it looks like it is soon
to be defunct)

Try some of the settings on the, "Settings Manager, "option, too.
There's a lot there. 

At the very least you will not have to log out any
more to re-establish your title bar.

../if/ that's the problem...

When Windows are opened the bugs come in.
