Since updating to 11.10 tonight, window controls for certain applications are missing from the global menu area. So far, Gedit and System Monitor are affected. They must be closed with a keyboard shortcut or by using Quit from their menu. Most applications work as expected, with window controls appearing at far left when the global menu bar is moused over.
Also, perhaps related, dialog boxes open at the top-left corner of the screen and are also missing menu controls or any way to minimize them.
Screen shot of Gedit and a dialog added.
