Hi Marcin,
thanks for the report, however I cannot reproduce this. Can I ask:

1. If you turn off compositing, does this stuff occur? Do this with:

gconftool-2 --set --type bool/apps/metacity/general/compositing_manager false

(re-run with true to re-enable - results are immediate)

2. What graphics card/driver and resolution have you?

Never mind is compositing_manager true or false.

Card is Radeon 5450 in 1920x1080 resolution on radeon driver (open one).

Changed in unity-2d (Ubuntu):
