[Bug 807141] [NEW] Unity/Compiz seems to conflict with Conky


Public bug reported:

Ubuntu 11.04 amd64)
Unity: 3.8.16-0ubuntu1~natty1
Compiz: 1:0.9.4+bzr20110606-0ubuntu1~natty2
conky-all:  1.8.0-1ubuntu1


I'm not entirely certain it is Unity and/or Compiz, but since it is
windows overlapping incorrectly, I assume it has something to do with
the window manager.

The most noticeable thing happens when I open the Dash, and then the
Dash slides behind one or more of my three adjacent Conky instances
(windows). I have attached a screenshot. I can try to determine more
information if someone wants to give me an idea of where to look.

This happens intermittently. In some cases my left-most Conky window was
not being drawn at all until rebooting (even logging out and back in
would not help).

Sometimes alt-tabbing seems to help some of my current Unity / Compiz
problems, but it didn't seem to resolve the issue of the stacking order
of the desktop, Dash, and Conky.

Also sometimes entering killall conky in the terminal would still leave
one of the three Conky windows open no matter what, until I rebooted.
