hello,

sometimes windows-decorator (I think thats him) crashes and my ubuntu theme reverts to an old and ugly one. Then for example nautilus looks like this :
CLICK! (http://i53.tinypic.com/8yf7lg.png)

I have to logout and login to fix the problem. Then everything looks fine :
CLICK! (http://i56.tinypic.com/2py7qex.png)

My question is: how to prevent it from crashing and/or how to revert to my current theme without logging out ?

Regards,
Tares

This issue is unfortunately already a bit too long around:

Recent threads with summed-up workarounds, some users reported that the startup workarounds aren't working with Natty anymore:

Woah. Well, I've been experiencing this issue in ealier Ubuntu versions, but not so often as in this one, thats why I started the thread. I never thought it's so serious issue. Thanks for the reply ;)
