    For some reason, my open windows on my desktop sometime lock to where i can't move them.
    i guess i'll have to restart!
    does anyone know why or have this bug?

    Do you have any theme changing hacks or apps?

    no. The only thing that could be the problem is a program called cocktail.
    It enables me to change the original "show desktop" expose command. instead of moving all windows off screen, it pulls them into a box on the desktop.

    and then

    Classic :D

    Hate to break it to you ldenman, cocktail is a UI "hack" app. Ditch it and see if the problem persists.

    If you start up Cocktail and go to the interface pane you will see this :

    "The minimize desktop feature can cause unexpected system behavior on computers running Mac OS X 10.4.3 or later"

    unselect "minimize desktop"
    Your problem will be solved.
