  Auto-hide Unity launcher is transparent to clicks when revealed (you

Bug description:
  This has happened only once to me. I guess it's random.

  I had Thunderbird open and maximixed. I moved the cursor to the left
  of the screen; the dock or panel with application icons appeared. I
  clicked on some icons, but the clicks somehow "went through" and
  reached Thunderbird behind it, having no effect on the dock.

  I switched focus forth and back to different windows and tried again
  and the issue persisted. Then I unmaximized and remaximized
  thunderbird and the issue disappeared (not sure whether I had to do it
  twice, though).

  When I had open Thunderbird, the system was a bit slow due to high RAM
  usage and paging (but when I observed the issue it wasn't any more),
  so it may be a timing issue where the order in which some things are
  done is not guaranteed but is usually right (which doesn't make it
  less of a bug).

  Note this is not a minor issue (though one that apparently manifests
  itself with a very small probability). Guaranteeing 100% you-click-on-
  what-you-see is absolutely critical.
