Hi Pavel,

It's a response to a bug/crash in the desktop, possibly caused by
certain widgets. Desktop Clock, QNetMan, Currency Exchange are widgets
people claim will trigger this problem. I'm sure there are others.

Try to think if there was a widget you installed recently before this
problem happened and try to remove it. See if the problem goes away.

If you can't accept that, there are some scripts on a talk.maemo.org
thread about this problem that will restart the desktop and restore
your widgets so you don't have to reboot or re-add them manually.
