Bug Description

I'll sometimes try to modify the brightness on my laptop's screen and I use the Gnome-Brightness-Applet. When I click on it it is in the right place but then if I click on it again, the bar moves all the way to the left side of the screen and I can't click on it otherwise it will close. So when this happens, I have to use the arrow keys to modify the brightness.

Nothing severe, but very annoying :)

Thank ya, and keep up the damn good work! :D

I noticed this same behaviour but the brightness dial jumps to upper-left of my screen.
