Short description of error

I opened Blender and used it maximized (I pressed the rectangle in the upper right corner), after a while I minimized Blender and switched to my Desktop. After I clicked the blender icon in my taskbar the application didn't focus and after pressing the blender icon again I got a Blender window with an incorrect UI.

The application did not respond and had to be restarted.

I disabled the OpenCL support for Cycles, because I thought it could be the reason but that did not help. I also uninstalled Blender and reinstalled it, but the bug still exists.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Maximize Window
  • Use for a while (I rendered the scene with the cycles engine)
  • Minimize window
  • Click on the Desktop or another application
  • Click on the blender icon in the Windows Taskbar

Is there an easy entry point for beginners to investigate the bug? If so I would like to help resolve the bug myself.
