    See pic. It's happened a few times now. Not sure what causes it. Seems random.

    Fan Stacks also appear invisible and grid Stacks loose their background.

    It's not an issue that a restart doesn't resolve so it's not really an issue.

    Anyone else had this?

    the same thing happens to me all the time.

    The same thing happens to me all the time. Sometimes i restart the computer, but most of the time i don't care that much. If anyone finds or fix, please tell me.

    I haven't upgraded to Leopard yet, but it seems a full reboot wouldn't be necessary. There's a way to restart the dock. Just type killall Dock in the terminal.

    Note: I don't remember exactly what the command is. Capitalization might be different. Could be "Killall Dock" or "killall dock", but I think it's like I said in my original post, with Dock capitalized.

    EDIT: Also, if you use MainMenu, a maintenance app, you can use that to restart the dock.

    You would think that that would work, but NOPE. That was the first thing I did. The only ways it has worked for me, are restarting, or logging out and logging back in.
