Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

After updating to unity 3.6.6, the launcher sometimes fails to render itself properly which looks like like visual tearing. Hovering the pointer over the launcher restores it to original state and icons/quicklists are clickable. Move the pointer out again and the launcher goes bad.
