[Bug 1037142] [NEW] Week33 - Grid highlight window appears while switching between workspaces


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Week 33 - Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal with ppa:timo-jyrinki/prerelease with
graphic card (Intel, Radeon, Nvidia)

Empty translucent window appears on left half of the screen while switching between workspaces, mostly on workspace 1. Please see screenshot.
It might be difficult to reproduce this, when I tried reproducing it, same issue did not occur everytime the below steps were actioned.  But I was able to reproduce it more than once on 3 different machines with same quantal and ppa.
Clicking on workspace switcher icon on launcher makes the translucent window go away, clicking elsewhere on the desktop does not affect the translucent window and it stays.

- Open 3 terminal windows
- Click workspace switcher icon to activate workspace view
- Move 1 terminal window to another workspace
- Click back on one of the terminal windows in workspace 1
- Continue to move between workspaces

Please note :- 
Simple switching between workspaces with or without an open application also produces this issue.
