Application windows have no title bar and title bar buttons anymore

A couple of days ago I started my XFCE desktop and found that my application windows do not have the title bar and title bar buttons anymore. I am able to start applicatons via the menu but they are placed in the left upper corner always. Also they are placed on each other, so only the app on the top of the pack is accessible. It is not possible to switch between windows via CTRL+TAB.
This is XFCE 4.6.1 on Gentoo Linux. Starting the apps from the terminal doesnt give me additional information. What can I do to solve this?

Sounds like the Window Manager died, ALT+F2-> xfwm4.  That should get you going again, if the Run Dialog doesn't come up just launch "xfwm4" from a terminal.

GL!

here what works for me

1- logout
2- log in console mode (ie: CTRL+ALT+F1  and log )
3- rm ~/.cache/sessions/xfce4-session*
4- reswitch to X and log in (ie: CTRL+ALT+F7 and log)
5- voila
