Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

Installed A3 clean install and I have black spots where icons should be. Holding the mouse over an area pop up a tool tip with the "icon's" name. Clicking on said spot brings up the application. Would expect to see icons.

I think john lea is ATI as well. Could this be an ATI issue (again)

I get it with an NVIDIA card... so I don't think it's ATI specific...

It has to do with the status slider thing.. i.e. whenever UbuntuOne is doing stuff and should be showing the little status slider, all the icons below it disappear.
