How to Reproduce:

Normally after distro-upgrade or a clean install, since the 1st Boot
you'll see a white square in unussed portion of gnome panels (totally
white if the panel is clean)


1.- Launch some application (firefox in this case)
2.- Left Mouse Click on Firefo's Window List Box (This Will Minimize Firefox to Panel)
3.- At this Step, maybe the White panell has disappeared ( Now the color is normal according to Ambiance Theme )
4.- Click Again in Firefox's Windows List Box ( The Window must Maximize and the White Square in Gnome Panel appears Again. If its not, repeat the Minimize and Maximize actios to rise up the bug)

Temporary WorkArround:

Enable "Show Hide Buttons" under Panel Properties. This will "transfer"
the buggy white color effect to the sidebuttons in the panel.
