In the past when my Gnome desktop has started acting flakey I've
~/.gnome to ~/.gnome.old
~/.gnome-desktop to ~/.gnome-desktop.old
logged out and then logged back in. Gnome will create new
.gnome and .gnome-desktop files.
You'll have to redo all your preferences which can be a hassle but
it has cured the few odd problems I've had with the Gnome desktop,
