Bug Description

Trying to resize the sidebar in LibreOffice results in a shivering resize bar (it oscillates approximately 5 pixels left and right), disallows grabbing the handle with the mouse (the mouse cursor is changed to resize) and makes the machine unresponsive.

CPU load goes up to 100%
Mouse and Unity Menu not operable (Keyboard input works partly)
No chance to terminate LO (as the window frame is grayed out and unresponsive)

Have to reboot machine in order to get it to work properly again.

Phenomenon is reproducable on Macbook Pro Retina 15"

Haven't tried on MBPR 13" yet but will do.

Workaround: Don't resize the bar, use the X-Icon to close and the graphical icons to open sidebar again.
