[Bug 830110] [NEW] Horrifically bright "Aero Snap" color (grid plugin?)


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

When using Aero Snap (sorry, I don't know the official terminology for
Unity, this is the effect that happens when you move a window to the
sides or the top of the screen), I now get a horrendous goldish-yellow
color instead of the soft orange I used to get in Ubuntu Natty. This
color is painfully bright, to the point that it washes out everything
below it. I actually find myself looking away from the monitor when
moving a window to the sides, it's that bright. See the attached

This happens regardless of the graphics hardware or drivers (tested on
radeon, fgrlx, nouveau and nvidia) so it's apparently some
misconfiguration. It's obviously much worse on larger/brighter monitors
(esp. when using "movie" settings to watch a movie and you try to drag-
maximize the movie window).

Any ideas?
