[Bug 1487404] Re: gnome-panel spins causing high cpu in Trusty 14.04


It appears to do with either the "Tooltip" feature or interaction of gnome-panel(via flashback) with Unity app-menu. 
In my 12.04 LTS with gnome fallback the tooltip text appears properly and gnome-panel is very quiet. So the issue must be with tooltip feature simply or some other changes. Anyway i do not know details of bugs /changes in that area.
Since my machine at moment has no space for trying out latest builds(already running 3 flavors) i leave it here . Would update if i get more data.
