Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

If the Unity Dash is hidden (using app maximized) I make a selection in a GTK app and I drag-n-drop it, the Unity Dash shows up. I'm not sure it's a feature or a bug, but sometimes it stays there and doesn't wanna disappear. The only way I could manage to hide it was to move a selection behind it and back.

It behaved so when I tried it with Chrome, Firefox and Nautilus, and it didn't with MySQL Workbench. I managed to get and stick the dash also with Netbeans, I had to move a tab to do so.

If with "dash" you mean the launcher on the left-hand side (the dash is the thing you see when pressing the Ubuntu button in the top-left corner or press the Super key), then this is a duplicate of bug 724986.

You're right, I'm sorry. What should I do now?
