It appears next to Menu on th top left portion of the screen, it has been an 
icon that looked like the Ubuntu wallpaper.

The window decorations on each of the windows, there are several incons missing 
or displayed incorrectly (such as the one for terminal).

What has happened as far as I can tell various portions of the theme have 
changed from Ambiance, even though that is what is set as the theme. The buttons 
for minimize, maximize and close are a different shape and color. I have 
discovered others as well but am certain that they are all related to the proble 
I have outlined.
