Photoshop: Tool errors when working in Photoshop CC for long periods.

When I'm using Adobe Photoshop CC, occasionally after I've been using it for an extended period (4+ hours), the tools will stop working, and only display the brush tool. If I save and restart the issue goes away, but comes back within 30 minutes.

I am using a Cintiq Tablet, but I don't think it is related.

I'd appreciate any help or ideas.

What, specifically, is not working? Have you reset the tools, or your preferences?
