That does sound odd. But if it just started happening today, or within the past few days, some sort of file corruption could be the cause. If you want to test that, try this:
1. Quit everything, except the Finder.
2. Go to ~/Library/Preferences and remove (don't delete) the com.apple.Dashboard.plist file to the Desktop.
3. Log out and log back in to your account and see if the problem continues. If not, and everything else is behaving normally, then the preferences file was corrupted, so you can delete the one on your Desktop.
Post back with results.
