Go to mint menu - system tools - preferences - cinnamon setting.
Choose applets and restore to default
Go back and choose panel. If panel edit mode is checked then un check it. Make sure desktop layout option is set to Traditional (panel at the bottom)
Log out and log back in to Cinnamon. Everything should be back as normal. It worked for me
For me it seems to be the Gnome-like menu applets that are causing Cinnamon to break. I have them running on a different machine (Acer extensa) on LMDE cinnamon with no problems. So it may just be a problem with Maya. You could try running LMDE to see if that's more stable on your system.
Cinnamon obviously still needs a bit of work and ironing out, but it's definitely the best way forward for linux. Shame it's just not quite there yet

Then logged into Cinnamon and switched to one panel at the top. So far so good and I've rebooted and logged out/logged in a few times now. This makes it seem like an nVidia driver bug, but I know at least one other person in this forum had this issue with an ATI card.

I don't remember the exact wording and I'm at work on a Mac right now so I can't check. I was using the one that said (Recommended) after it at first. Then I tried the one with the post release updates and it seems to be working now.

i'm working on a t61 without any proprietary drivers. installed mint 13 mate first and then decided to download the cinnamon package.

However, when I bring up a terminal (ctrl-alt-t) and run cinnamon --replace, the complete Cinnamon desktop shows up, but it goes away if I close the terminal window.

Don't run it in a terminal window, open the run dialog (Alt+F2) or choose the "restart cinnamon" option if you have the settings shortcut on your panel.
