Bug Description


When VLC is on fullsize mode, the unity panels don't disapear, even if we put unity on fullsize mode too.
The only way we can do is to put unity on fullsize mode first and then we can put on VLC in fullsize mode and enjoy the movie correctly.

Bug affect chromium full screen also. Panels won't disappear.

This issue happens because of the problem described in #578956, and should be fixed together with that one. Will mark as duplicate of that.

Actually, I won't mark as dup as they describe different things and people will probably just create this bug again :)
