Public bug reported:

Affects: gnome-panel (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed


Description:
I am running the latest Ubuntu development packages (gnome-panel
2.14.1-0ubuntu5).

Description:

I had a tall icon (a preview of a tall image) that I dropped over the
Menu Bar (or near it) in my default gnome panel at the top of the
display.  The icon snapped down so that it was placed just beneath the
panel on the desktop.  This is the behavior I would expect.  However,
something very bad happened with the gnome panel.  It became covered
along its entire width with repeated renderings of the Menu Bar.  I am
attaching a screenshot.

Repro:

You can see the tall icon in the attached screenshot.  Create something
like it, and then try repeatedly dropping the preview icon onto your
gnome panel somewhere over or near the Menu Bar.
