Bug Description

Just testing Ubuntu GNOME Vivid 20150120.1 i386 and after passing the mouse over the menu items in the launcher they stay "highlighted". Also when you open the menu from the launcher and click on the "scroll" buttons to the right the new menu items just overlay the old. A picture is worth a thousand words so I'm attaching a screenshot.

BTW I'm not just ignoring Tim Lunn's request to report this upstream but I've been AFK a great deal and I'd like to know a little more before doing so.

Another user on the forums with almost identical hardware (Atom 330 instead of 230 but still i945 graphics) reports having the same issue, but it's OK in Debian testing:

On my end I've tried updating X via Xorg-edgers and also tried the 3.19.0-031900rc5-generic mainline kernel to no avail.

I get the same results in Utopic if I install GNOME 3.14 via the GNOME3 and GNOME3 Staging PPA's. It also doesn't matter if I use gdm or lightdm with either greeter.

This appears to be fixed with the latest gnome-shell and mutter that Tim Lunn uploaded on the 24th.
