    Hi,

    I just noticed that Mission Control behaves weird. Sometimes it shows up everything fine but I also experienced that it forgets to show the different desktops.
    In latter case it ends up without showing the grey background and as mentioned those desktops at the top.

    Anyone having those issues too?

    Just tested it on my mbp and I can see what you mean. The only thing showing up in MC here are my wallpaper and my opened windows. No desktops nor fullscreen apps (iTunes is in fullscreen mode, it should show that one). It is fine after a reboot though. I might try the combo updater, see what it does.

    Other than a reboot and installing the 10.7.3 combo updater no.

    I think I finally found the solution for this problem.

    To solve it:

    1. Open up the Finder.
    2. Hold the option (alt) key and click on Go/Library.
    3. Open up Application Support.
    4. Open up the Folder "Dock".
    5. Delete all files you find in there.

    By deleting the (maybe corrupted) data in the dock folder you force the dock to create a new database.
    I think this was the reason for the dock to behave so weird.

    Hope this helps anyone else experiencing this problem. Please leave a post if this worked for you!
