Bug Description

Software Center version 5.3.11, the Quantal Quetzal

There is an ugly layout glitch in the lobby view every time Ubuntu Software Center is started when recommendations are enabled. After the recommendations panel loads, the upper panel is not laid out correctly and the recommendations panel header items initally overlap the What's New panel above. In addition, the Categories panel to the left is not resized correctly. These visual issues are corrected as soon as the mouse is passed over the categories area at the left of the view.

Note that I could not create a screenshot because the act of creating it corrects the bad layout.
