Bug Description

On starting the boinc manager, the window seems to have a screen draw error. There is a small black box with a single blue pixel overlying the top left corner of the window, partially obscuring the Notices tab. The box will disappear if the window is maximized and if returned to a window. It will reappear after closing the boinc manager and relaunching most times.

This bug is triggered by appmenu-gtk: removing this package (and rebooting) will fix this graphical glitch.

Resizing the window in general will fix it (no need to maximize and restore it explicitly).

Curious that synaptic tells me appmenu-gtk related to dbus and I find /usr/bin/aptd
daemon (dbus related apparently) is crashing. And with appmenu-gtk present, yes
a resize fixed the problem in boinc manager. Newly installed 12.04 today.
