To: <email address hidden>

Yes, I still seeing this bug.

Couple hours ago I did upgrade packages to up-to-date versions and
rebooted system. Then I saw in unlock screen two different glyphs are
stroked (picture attached to post).

How can I install newest kernel or experimental driver?

My current kernel is:
$ uname -a
Linux eee-900 2.6.38-8-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 11 03:31:50 UTC
2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Version of xserver-xorg-video-intel is 2:2.14.0-4ubuntu7
