Is this bug reproducible with the latest Lucid packages ?
Tanks in advance.

Yes. I repeated the process by throwing in a bunch of files in the Desktop (Lucid), changed to 'Default zoom level' to %66 and got a similar result. As you can see from the attached screenshot, the distance between column 5 and 6 is larger than the rest.

If don't work please run:

The first command returns the following:
Package gnome-desktop not installed and no hook available, ignoring
While the second command opens up the window shown in the attached screenshot. I clicked on the 'send report' button (I did that last time too) and then the bash prompt returned.

Bashar.
As you can see, there's no files attached by apport here.
repeat the command above then click on Send report and authorize the program to collect info in launchpad ( are only infos regarding the program gnome-desktop and its dependencies, no more).
If i have not this files i cannot confirm the bug.

Thank you for your patience Fabio. What I have been trying to say in my last comment is that I am clicking on the 'Send Report' button, as in the last screenshot, but for some reason the report is not getting attached to this bug. The only thing that happens is those new entries with [description: updated] get added to the thread.
Seems this apport command is not working, is there another way to send you the report?
