When you are in this state (the first bug), does simply moving the
mouse over where the buttons are supposed to be make them reappear
(that, or resizing the window)? Or do you have to edit #lang-line
portion of the editor? (The latter actually removes and re-installs
buttons; the former would correspond to some kind of updating bug in
the button's callbacks.)
