It sounds like some of your plugins causes the desktop process to crash,
and when it restarts after the crash it reverts to loading only the
default set of plugins (to avoid crashing again). (There is a flag file
which the desktop removes in shutdown, and whose existence in startup
tells desktop that it crashed.)

You could try disabling your plugins one by one to see which of them
causes the desktop to crash.
