[Bug 745552] [NEW] "System Settings" sometimes opens invisible and makes rest of desktop mostly unresponsive


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Binary package hint: gnome-control-center

Sometimes, apparently at random, when I open the gnome control center
(these days usually by selecting "System Settings" from the powerswitch
menu), it appears not to open, but in fact it has opened but is
invisible. If I click/drag randomly inside the area where it would be
the mouse seems to pick up one of the control center icons. Otherwise
the desktop is generally unresponsive (the whole desktop, not just the
area under where the window would be) and I have to ssh in from another
machine (or switch to console) to killall gnome-control-center to
recover. Usually then the next time I run it, it's fine.
