I'm experiencing this problem as well: Whenever an app shows the progressbar on the launcher icon (Ubuntu One in the example video) all launcher entries below it won't show the icons, up to one of those show the "launched" arrow on the left. This one will show the arrow, and all below it will show normally.

To see this problem in action, try running examples/launcher.py in libunity, and making sure that there are some non-running launcher icons below the one where the progressbar is shown.

A bit more info: this bug happens on my radeon 3200 laptop with the open source ati drivers; it does not happen on my gForce 6600 desktop with Noveau.

Sorry, my gForce 6600 desktop was not up to date.
After updating this bug started happening in that machine too.

Some clarifying for #3: the progressbar never ends up being drawn, and it's only when it's supposed to be showing that this error takes place.

Marking fix committed as confirmed by Dave. Please re-open if it still happens with Unity 3.8.2, thanks!
