Bug Description

From time to time the scroll widget appears in the Dash even though there's no visible view that can be scrolled. The widget usually appears between the second and third scope result column (probably because of previews?).

This actually happens only in the home lens. This actually doesn't appear to be a regression, rather a bug that I didn't see because no filter results was long enough to need a scroll bar...

So to reproduce:

1) Open the dash, and make sure you are in the home scope
2) Click Filter resutls to open the filters.
3) Notice there are 2 scroll bars now.
4) Now go to the application scope
5) Click Filter results
6) Notice theres no thin scroll bar
7) Now mouse over where the scroll bar normally is

Expected:
  No overlay scroll bar appears.

Result:
  Overlay scroll bar appears.

This bug was fixed in the package unity - 7.0.2+13.10.20130705.1-0ubuntu1

---------------
unity (7.0.2+13.10.20130705.1-0ubuntu1) saucy; urgency=low

  [ Timo Jyrinki ]
  * Bump version number to go with X.org update

  [ Brandon Schaefer ]
  * When the ScopeView changes visibility make sure we update the filter
    scroll view as well. This way we don't get random overlay scroll
    bars appearing when it shouldn't!. (LP: #1175666)

  [ Timo Jyrinki ]
  * Move unity to the new libxi changes, along with the new 1.14
    xserver. Manual merge to be able to migrate together with Xorg from
    -proposed.

  [ Didier Roche ]
  * Revert rev 3404, makes autopilot tests failing as well as keep weird
    filters artefacts in the preview

  [ Marco Trevisan (Treviño) ]
  * ScopeProxy: use glib::SignalManager to manage connections and
    disconnections.
  * Use again glib::Cancellable wrapper in scopes code.

  * Automatic snapshot from revision 3410
