Binary package hint: software-center

Natty Narwhal Alpha 3 running from liveCD on Panasonic CF-51 Core Duo,
M52 Radeon mobility graphics, Intel 3945 a/b/g wireless.

Soon after the desktop background first appears, a grey stripe appx 2 to 4 pixels tall x full screen width appears at the top of screen. As the desktop stabilizes, it is replaced by a shaded grey notification taskbar of normal height with the expected notifications on the right, an Ubuntu logo on the left, but no tabs or tabbed text, or text options. Below the Ubuntu logo is what must be a launcher window running the remainder of screen height and wide enough to house large icons, offering a selection of 10 icons. This launcher bar seems to have an auto hide function, but no controls offered either by menu, left or right click on the bar, nor left or right click on the Ubuntu logo in the to taskbar.
As application windows are in the foreground, a portion of their menu bar options appear in the notification taskbar, although inconsistently. Sometimes these menu bar options are only visible in the notification taskbar upon rollover, sometimes less options appear in the notification taskbar than are in the application's menu bar, and sometimes the application's menubar is completely gone, with some or all of the menu options appearing in the notification taskbar.
Additionally, upon attempting to hide the launcher bar on one occasion, all future windows were docked and unmoveable at the upper left hand corner of the desktop, minus their menu bars.
