Home, statusbar and tasknavigator are all in the same process to save
memory (>1MB per UI process).  If any of their plugins have stability
issues, it brings down the whole desktop (which then restarts without
Home plugins[1]).

If the problem happens without any home plugins enabled, maybe you've
installed some bad Statusbar plugin?

[1] So far we've had problems mainly with Home plugins as they are
     more complex than e.g. Statusbar plugins.
