Some upfront regions it becomes impossible to select the "cogs"

There seems to be an incredibly frustrating bug in Spirit/Upfront theme.

I have a below header area using an image or a slideshow as the background element, I can edit all the regions on the page EXCEPT for this particular slideshow region. I am unable to delete the region, or even edit the region settings as the "cogs" are un-selectable.

I don't suspect a plugin conflict, the reason for this is I duplicated teh region to see if it was a conflict of some kind, the duplicated region is perfectly editable or deletable.

I need to alter the images in the slideshow currently, and cannot do so.
