[ubuntu-x] Unity and ~/.drirc

Hi all,

I recently hit an issue that was hard to track down but easy to fix.
When I ran Unity, all the Unity windows (launcher, panel, dash) were
transparent. Bálint Magyar figured out that the issue is with ~/.drirc.
After removing the file, Unity started working correctly again. For more
information, see bug 745996 (http://pad.lv/745996). I've already added a
line in the release notes for this issue, but please keep it in mind if
anyone else reports odd graphical issues under Unity.
