[Bug 618837] [NEW] ugly bars around the screen


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

I just installed Maverick, to get a chance to test it before release.

The most visible difference is that there are very ugly bars around my
desktop. They are a couple of pixels wide, the left pixel e0d9d0 and the
right one f5f2ef in color (the same order on either side). I have panels
both on the top and the bottom, but moving one of them showed a similar
bar “behind” it.

They’re very distracting, especially since my desktop (and the border of
my monitor) are much darker. They weren’t there just before the upgrade.
