Bug Description

Greetings Developers and Bug Reporters!

I recently upgraded to Trusty Tahir and thought I might dabble with Gala. Upon doing so, I noticed a black rectangle blocking the right hand side of the display, although interestingly not wingpanel (see attached image). This is an obviously blocker for use (for me, at least) as I can't use that part of the screen at all.

I'm almost certain that this isn't entirely rooted in Gala, as I've seen this particular visual anomily before on the LightDM based log-in/switch-user screen under Saucy Salamander. Also, the last time I tested Gala under Saucy Salamander (which was admitedly a fair while back), I didn't notice this anomoly at all. This is all rather vague, I'm sure, but perhaps it provides some illumination for a diagnosis.

As I'm a perenial novice when it comes to bug reporting, so any guidance you can provide on better reporting (i.e. any log files, debug or other output which might be of use to you developers) would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,


P.S. I'm running the latest Gala 0.1.0 daily from the elementaryOS daily PPA under Ubuntu 'Trusty Tahir' 14.04 x86-64. I'm also running the recommended nvidia-313 proprietary driver for my NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GT graphics card.
