Vanishing WordPress Rich Text Editor…

I had a bit of a strange problem yesterday (no, not that itchy red rash again…) When I went to write a new post, none of the rich text editing buttons were available. Now there are many people who would recommend that you turn them off (for very valid reasons), but I'm quite a fan of them to simplify my posting – so I was rather confused at their disappearance.

After a bit of searching I came across this post on the WordPress forums: Icons have vanished on "write post" page which details the problem and solution perfectly. Basically all you need to do is keep hitting CTRL+F5 on the write post page until the buttons come back. It sounds like it's a caching problem after WordPress make any code changes to the controls.
