Bug Description

My computer:
- OS: Ubuntu 10.10
- Graphics: Nvidia 9600M GT
-- Driver: 260.19.06 beta driver out of Ubuntu reposit

Version: Avant Window Navigator 0.4.1-rewrite-bzr751+201010141122 from the repository though synaptic
WM: Compiz I believe?

Bug: The desktop switcher has shifted up slightly and is not displaying correctly, also the dialog box that appears when I right click and "about shiny switcher" does not close (the close & license buttons do not respond).
I can still click on switcher to change desktops, even the ones that are invisible.

Occurrences: This has happened twice this week randomly. After half an hour or so it might shift back down to the right spot but still behaves weirdly (cant click on the buttons in the 'about' dialog and displays strangely.

All can be seen here:

Sorry I rushed the report and forgot that I had changed some theme settings not long ago
The switcher is displaying just fine, apart from being vertically shifted (the 'invisible desktops' were just due to me setting background transparency to 0)

Restarting The applet or all of AWN does not fix the error, it fixes it's self randomly over time.

Here's eveything jammed into one image:

I've discovered that the occurrences aren't random (I just wasn't observant enough before), but happen when I lower a window 'below the screen'. In the image the first 3 (top down) screen shots are the same terminal window being lowered down to show the effect and the last one is the terminal stretched out to about 3 times the height of my screen (1280x800) which throws everything else on the panel downwards.

Also I have updated AVN many times since I reported the bug.

Current version according the about menu: Avant Window Navigator 0.4.1-rewrite-bzr820+201101220038
Shiny switcher version is still 4.1

Although my version is much newer the bug appears to have not changed.
