Bug Description

in fully updated Oneiric if you leave the dash open and wait for the screensaver to cut in and lock the screen the screensaver does not blank the dash, it sits behind it. Worse, when you try to unlock the screensaver the login window is behind the dash so blurry and can't be typed in because the focus is a bit confused.

i can confirm this.

this can be repeated as well by opening the Dash, and then pressing CTRL+ALT+L (lock screen)

the type focus is in the password entry box, so you can type your password, and press enter, or you can press TAB to focus the lower left button that should say 'switch user'. that will take you to the login screen.

Also, the mouse does focus on the login window, and clicks 'through' the Dash.

note: after repeating this effect again, Xorg, Unity, Compiz and a few other graphics related things SIGSEV'd, see bug #849383
