Bug Description

To reproduce install ubuntu mate xenial in a kvm virtual machine using qxl emulated graphics for 2d accelartion and by defualt marco draws compositing and after the install click on the newtomanger applet on the top panel first think after reboot. Then it has giant shadows on around the network manager popup in an dull gray color.

I expected this to have network manager just popup a widget like it normally does on lubuntu or marco without compositing. What happened was I get this problem with the network manager and open mate-tweak from the menu to turn off compositing and click the network manager applet again and it appears how I expected it. I also tried changing the to one of the different themes blue submarine in ubuntu mate so I do not think it is a theme issue.

I also get this if I instal ubuntu mate to the bare metal with intel graphics on my computer so it is probably not just qxl drivers.

What you describe is the intended operation. Marco compositing adds shadows.
