Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I'd like a trace a bug a bit before reporting it (I see no hope of a fix given the vague description I can muster now). How can I get a list of layers on screen, and track their status?

When I use Chrome on Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal, I get a bug about every other day. A layer appears onscreen that floats above all windows (Chrome or otherwise). It can't be closed, and will persist until Chrome itself is completely exited:

Ubuntu chrome layer bug

The layer I think is a context (right click) menu that fails to close. Where can I go next to track this down a bit more?

Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal Gnome classic desktop nVidia GeForce GT 430 using (I think) the open source drivers

Please add a comment if you have this bug also.

Filing this as a xorg bug is probably the best place to start. –  Jorge Castro Jun 14 '12 at 11:50
