Is Gadget on Windows 7 buggy for now?

Is Gadget on Windows 7 buggy for now? For example, I made CPU Meter, Clock "always on top", but sometimes, one is on top but the other is not. I have to make it "not always on top" and then "always on top" again and it will show up on top again.

"Vista's gadgets were prone to severe memory leaks (that article shows a pretty extreme example). Nevertheless, this can obviously cause bugs.

Windows 7's gadgets are said to be much better in this regard though. Since the RTM build onwards I haven't had any problems. YMMV."

"I have found them to be ok whenever I had the urge to use them - but it really depends on the gadget and some are better than others. (And apart from currency converter and weather on occasion, I usually have them turned off).

I do randomly have the problem you said, but then again, I have had a similar problem in random programs ever since Windows 95 where the program that is meant to go on top gets lost, but as you said, turning off and back on fixes it."
