Screen area goes dead to tools after Lr5 used for several days

Lr5.0 using with Late 2012 27" iMac i7, OS X 10.8.4 Nividia GeForce GTX 675MX

After using the tools with Lr5 open for 2-3 days, a rectangle of the screen (approx 17 x 10 cm, just off centre) goes dead to tools and I have to quit and reopen Lr5 to get access to the whole screen again.

When the screen area is dead to Lr5, other programmes work in that area, so not a hardware problem.

If you reset your crop does it come back?

I will try next time it happens. I've tried everything else I could think of with no affect.
(I've just re-started Lr5, so it will be a few days before it goes dead again)

Ok, it's gone dead again.

Tried resetting crop Rikk, but it doesn't affect it.
Any other advice? I'll try to leave it as is for a while.

Any point trying the 5.2 Release Candidate?

(I've asked this over on the Lightroom Discussions too)
