    Unity Panel can't be reopened after minimizing windows

    Unity panel is busted. When minimizing a window to panel they cannot be reopened. Logout or reboot required.

    I can't get what you describe. My setup works just fine, 3.7.0-7 kernel. Unity, fast, fast.

    Observing how the windows open and close, lots of details, what you experience is likely a non-Intel graphics thing.

    Re: Unity Panel busted when minimize windows

    Greetings,
    Windows are working fine on 3.7.0-7 on a Intel GM45 chipset. The only problem I am having is my shutdown link logs out instead of shutdown. Currently using a shutdown bash script. This started with Tuesday's updates. Actually with the install of the current kernel. And I agree with the fast, fast, fast.

    There is a new feature when you minimize windows to panel. There is this sort of wavy-pan of the icon. Actually a nice little effect (eyecandy of course). For some reason it has locked up on machine testing nvidia-current.

    I removed nvidia-current and installed nouveau-firmware, but, to no avail.

    I logged off and then logged on to another account on the same install and the Unity Panel/launcher works perfectly. I suspect then a compiz problem.
    Edit:
    I made an addendum to the bug.
