In 12.04 I had the launcher set to autohide, which worked perfectly.

However in 12.10 I am getting a strange "ghost" issue.

Take this screenshot, with me having a maximised google chrome window, mousing over the back button.

As well as this, I also get another ghosting issue when I have the panel set with an opacity, whereby whatever is in approximately the middle left of the screen gets mirrored up to to panel, but only when I move/switch to a window.

But that one is not so annoying as the autohide bug, how can I fix that?

It should be graphics issue. Are you using unity 2D? Do you have any external graphics card? – shantanu Oct 23 '12 at 11:34
I believe is a bug too. I asked a question here: Your input might be useful there. – Pablo Zubieta Nov 7 '12 at 18:20

That happened to me too. Since I have an nvidia card I enabled proprietary drivers and now it works.

To do this, open the Software Sources via the Dash (or through System Settings) and hit the Additional Drivers tab.

If autohide doesn't work that means it simply doesn't work. I have to press Meta key to see it.
