Unity bar in auto-hide mode will not reveal based on mouse events

Bug #1056555 reported by otakuj462 on 2012-09-26

unity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Behavior is set to: auto-hide: on; reveal location: left side; sensitivity: maximum (all the way to the right).

However, moving the mouse against the left side does not reveal the launcher. Using the keyboard (e.g. pressing Alt-F1, or Super), does reveal the launcher. But the mouse alone does not.

I have tried toggling Auto-hide on and off, and clicked on "Restore Default Behaviours", but the result is the same.

Changed in unity (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

This started happening to me after nvidia's driver update to 304.51 on amd64 8-P
