Benchmark default placement overlaps (damages) Unity launcher and panel, resulting in artificially low benchmark results

Bug Description

A big graphics performance bottleneck is redrawing the Unity shell. This happens every time some other window redraws below or above the panel or launcher.

The default location of the Compiz Benchmark window overlaps the Unity launcher and panel. This triggers unity shell redraws and makes the benchmark results much lower than they would otherwise be.

We should change the default placement of the benchmark window to ensure it does not trigger unity shell damage.
