Hi, I reported (most likely) the same bug here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/unity/+bug/1165256

Let me add that this bug also disappears in my case if I choose to show the desktop icons. So, indeed, https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-settings-daemon/+bug/1115886 is the cause.
