Bug Description

To reproduce:

1. Click on "Gear button"; select "System Settings...".
2. Click on "Mouse & Touchpad".
3. Drag that "indicator" (I don't know what is it in English, sorry...) to the left end on the bar besides "Pointer speed"
4. Close the window.
5. Re-do step 1 and 2.


The indicator is at the left end of bar as we just put it there.

The indicator is at the same old position as if we didn't perform step 3.

This bug was fixed in the package gnome-control-center - 1:3.6.3-0ubuntu36

gnome-control-center (1:3.6.3-0ubuntu36) saucy; urgency=low

  * git_hide_unavailable_layout_settings_button.patch:
    - Only show layout settings button when it's usable
      (i.e. for certain ibus input methods) since it's too confusing
      to have the button visible but insensitive
  * git_show_per_window_input_settings.patch:
    - Show separate-layout-per-window option for GNOME too
  * git_restore_mouse_speed.patch:
    - Restore mouse & touchpad pointer speed (LP: #1186666)

This bug has been bothering the heck out of me since I got a new mouse. I saw that it is fixed in Saucy and who knows if and when the fix will be SRU'd to Raring. So I backported the fix from Saucy into Raring and put it in my PPA.

If you are affected by this, you can add my PPA from here (https://launchpad.net/~townsend/+archive/gnome-control-center-test) and give it a try.
