[Eric] New at Eric, have lost all 'viewer' windows

Using Eric 4.4.15 (as well as 4.4.14) I've managed to make all but the editor 
window go away.  The project viewer, template viewer, shell, etc - nothing but 
the source file editor.

I've tried every Alt-Shift-<letter> combination but the the only that appeared 
to do anything was Alt-Shift-D, which brought up the Debug-Viewer.  Debug-
Viewer shows no threads so I assume I'm not stuck in the middle of a debug 
session I didn't know about.

Using File/Open I can open .py files; they're displayed just fine.  I'm using 
PyQt4 and if I open a .ui file, either via Ctrl-O or File/Open, rather than 
bring up the Qt designer it opens the .ui file as a text file.

It was working fine last week on a small project.  I've also tried creating a 
brand new project and get the same results.

Any clues as to what I've messed up?
