I forgot to mention one other symptom. Alt-F4 doesn't work. Since I 
can't access the drop-down menus of an application, I try to close them 
with Alt-F4. That doesn't work. Ctrl-Q or Ctrl-W does work.

I thought it was just me. I developed the same problem the other night.
I've been on 12.04 since May and it worked fine until then. In addition
to the problems John describes, applications open on my secondary
monitor and I can't move them. Not only that, but they don't show an
icon on the panel like an open app should. Finally, when I go into
Settings Manager, both Window Manager and Window Manager Tweaks are
completely blank when I open them.

I can't remember if I ran any updates just before it happened or not. I
do remember that my machine did not shut down gracefully after a session
and things were wacky after that.
