Bug Description

Unity panel should not show up when the mouse pointer is in the upper area of the screen.

It is very annoying when you try to focus the mouse pointer on the File menu, use "go back one page" or click on the very left tab in the browser. Very often, Unity panel will show up "accidentally". It is especially annoying for novice users.

In my opinion, Unity panel should not be activated when the mouse pointer is up to 100 pixels from the top of the screen.

Can't find the master bug for this one, but yeah, this bug is a duplicate of another bug.

Yes, I agree with you. This is especially irritating when web browsing and some sort of solution should be implemented to solve this. I was about to report a similar bug.
