Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

Using the natty alpha2 candidate, if you open a combo box in an application while the launcher is displayed and click on one of the items the unity launcher seems to not notice the mouse has been used somewhere else and just stay on screen

summary: - launcher statys on screen when it shouldn't
+ launcher stays on screen when it shouldn't
