Disappeared! Task Bar Icons

After a reboot my KDE 3.0.1-1 'lost' the ability to show the running 
tasks/programs on the task bar. These are the small rectangular buttons with 
the program name that 'sit' on the taskbar and when clicked mininumize or 
restore that program, ie if you have 3 'Shell-Konsoles' running there will be 
1 box on the bar and clicking it will show a line for each 'Shell-Konsole' 
and a number, clicking a line restores that Shell Konsole.  Well these are no 
longer there! 

I have found that if you rt click the bar and goto ADD > Special Button > 
Window List you get an icon on the bar that when clicked gives a verticle 
list of the running programs that you can select to restore that prog to the 
desktop, but this is less convienient. I really want the 'bar items' back and 
I really want to know how this feature got lost, and how to make it come 

SuSE 8.0 up to date via YOU, kernel 2.4.18-64GB-SMP, KDE 3.0.1-1 up to date 
via YOU as of today. Other users logons still have the tasks/windows icons on 
the bar.

Any ideas?   All help appreciated!

Thanks .......... PeterB
