Bug Description

Binary package hint: geeqie

When I make Geeqie go full screen, it leaves a space for the launcher which is hidden, so there's a strip down the left of not-full-screened.

This doesn't seem to affect anything else, so I don't think it's a unity-wide bug. Perhaps it's down to some peculiarity in the way geeqie full-screens.

This is not just a problem in Unity, but also happens with the gnome-panel in Ubuntu Classic. I remember it used to happen in maverick too.

It does seem to be a bug in geeqie itself, not using full-screen correctly.
