    Are you referring to the weird transparent greenish thing?
    I've never seen it before... does "top" or the System Monitor tell you what it is? Is it part of Compiz?
    If I'm not being clear enough or giving you enough information, just ask

    I think that green thing is Totem or some other player...but I have seen some unusual effects like each desktop is in its separated cube.

    Where do you click? When I click and drag, it does nothing, unless I click on a window, in which case it will move it.
    The "wall" is the Expo plugin. You can investigate in Advanced Desktop Effects Settings to figure out what it's doing.

    Mine has the same behavior. It isn't buggy or anything, as far as I can tell.
