This is a problem in QuicklistsView.cpp's drawing function not taking the bottom of the screen into account when doing the drawing. It should be modified to draw the draw the pointer lower down on the quicklist box so that the entire quicklist can be shown.

I would propose doing two things:
1. Slide to make the selected icon completely in view
2. Draw the quicklist with the pointer lower down.

   - When a menu is triggered from Alt+key, app name stays visible on panel

   - show the launcher on <Super> KeyPress, this will be needed when the
     shortcut will be implemented if we are in intellihide mode
   - Make sure an underscore is correctly placed under the corresponding
     accelerator-key. (LP: #683427)
   - Adding a dummy --replace option for compatibility reason (LP: #692569)
   - Compiz crashed with SIGSEGV in CompWindow::id() (LP: #694945)
   - Tooltip text not vertically centered (LP: #697791)
   - Maximizing a window horizontally or vertically removes the title bar
     (LP: #696780)
   - Mousewheel support for indicators (LP: #681428)
   - Avoid Quicklists being positioned so that they are partially offscreen at

   - Update libunity to conform to latest GIO VAPI breakage (LP: #679964)
   - Initial unity-atk module implementation (LP: #701680)
   - Panel autohide when on Quicklist (LP: #683261)

    - needs latest and greatest from dee
    - add libatk1.0-dev build-dep
  * CMakeList:
    - distro-patch to avoid building tests right now as building them is failing
      with the current vala/gir stack. THIS NEED TO BE REMOVED.
  * debian/rules:
    - don't --fail-missing as we don't want to install the vapi yet. The gir
      package will come next week.
  * debian/unity-common.install:
    - install the manpages
  * debian/libunity3.symbols:
    - updated
