Bug Description

When searching the dash home lens, the dash seems to block occaisonally, which stops tyhe characters I type appearing. This kills the dash interactivity, and is generally really annoying.

I've attached a video that reproduces the issue. Note that in the video I'm not stopping typing - that's the dash blocking. It seems to be the gwibber lens (as it occurs in the home lens and the gwibber lens only), but It'd be nice if we could make unity work around buggy lenses.

I think a little information about the hardware would have been useful. Wonder why didn't ubuntu-bug did that already :/

Are you on Intel Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge graphics? Dash lockups are common on those chipsets, unfortunately.
