Photoshop: Stuck with hand tool

Photoshop sometimes (quite regularly) lets me change the tools (brushes, marquees etc) on the tool bar but only shows up with the hand tool in the canvas area. It then is impossible to do anything else than move the canvas no matter what tool I chose. Closing the doc doesn't even always help. Very strange and frustrating indeed.

The other thing to try is to take an inventory of what applications are also running when this occurs, then quit them one by one and see if the problem goes away.
