Bug Description

Description: Ubuntu Natty (development branch)
Release: 11.04
(2.6.38-8-generic x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux)
Updated completely to April 18, 2011.

I have a portrait style dual-head monitor setup. For me the Unity menu just barely sits in to the secondary monitor's area. It's a bit unpretty. When I maximize windows on this rig, they fill their respective monitor (by the way).

Please refer to the attachments.

Also, I think this may be related...

When I click (what I believe is) the pop-out button in the lower-right corner of the Unity Menu, it fails to launch or do anything.

I've included a screencast of what I mean. Note that in the cast, you can tell where the two different monitors physically separate by where the wallpaper is divided.

Now that's ugly. The dash should open up only on the primary monitor.

It would be great if the dash were resizable. It takes up a little too much room in my current setup in my opinion, and allowing for this would address this bug.
