Bug Description

12.04 LTS Unity Launcher: At the beginning of the day, it refused to show up when I put my cursor over to the left. Now it is continuously there, but does displace program windows. Like in fullscreen with a web browser, what I mean is it covers the left margin of the program window, so I cant press the back button, etc etc

Maybe could be even duplicate - but not sure.
So do not mark as duplicate now, thanks. We will see.

This bug is really annoying. I give it a try every time my system get updated. But I have to turn it off quickly because it simply doesn't work as i wish.
