Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-panel

I think a picture is worth a thousand words on this one:
Logging out and back in fixes the panel. I also have this same issue with a completely different laptop.

Hello. This is not an ubuntu specific bug. This happens with compiz and gnome panel in general no matter what distro you have.

I have the same bug in Arch Linux and, although it looks ugly, it's harmless. To re-fresh the panel (redraw it) i just right click, go to properties, change the size by one pixel, let it refresh, then change it back one pixel, and it's good.

I hope this get fixed!
