Press printscreen on Ubuntu 12.04

for me, the dialogue is visible as soon as the first flash starts to fade (i don't get to see it appear). the second flash is quite some time after... i would say as long as it takes for the first flash to fade away. the second flash is a single frame, no fading.

is this a duplicate of this bug? https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-utils/+bug/840432

although it only happens to me after I installed 12.04

I am seeing the same thing in 64bit Ubuntu 12.04 with Nvidia GPU. The first flash I am fine with but the 2nd happens when the save dialog appears and is unneccarry.

I did a clean install.
