Bug Description

Strangely when I open the new daily build 20120905 in Ubuntu Studio, the top bar and the background disappeared. It seems like the whole xfce4 background is missing.

dupe of bug 1046206?
thunar regression?

If you move ubiquity about does the background repaint?

Sorry, no. I'm using Virtualbox, and I move ubiquity, the background does NOT repaint. Direct install of course.

xnox: As far as I know thunar is not running when install is done from the boot menu. So whatever plymouth leaves is the background on the screen, but there is nothing running to refresh when ubiquity changes the window size. I suppose a command to blank the whole screen to black would be the best thing. If I can figure out where to put it. This is a low priority item for the ubuntustudio team.

No, we have our own BG. However at the point the user is talking about
(install from boot screen) we are not running anything to repaint BGs.
There is just what plymouth left us.
