I'm using Ubuntu 12.04.1 with Gnome 3, and it just updated the kernel from 3.2.0-31 to 3.2.0-32. Now, Gnome reverts to classic mode. I can confirm that it is the kernel, because if I select 3.2.0-31 from grub, Gnome 3 works properly again.

I have a Radeon HD 7850, and I have the latest, proprietary graphics drivers installed. I haven't gone through the pain of reinstalling them yet, because I'm hoping that there's an easier way to resolve this.

No, FGLRX uses modules, those modules were built with your earlier kernel thus why it works. Reinstall so it builds for the new one. – Uri Herrera Oct 14 '12 at 5:18
