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

You can see with the following screen-shots that the notifications of the bottom right has glitches out and always shows up blank white. Top right notifications are not affected.

Also something that might be related is certain windows get unframed and or transparent copying whatever the background is when moved around.

@ccomly Dang. ubuntu-bug crashed when you tried to report the (non-crash) display bug. So now there's 2 (unrelated) bugs! The 1st bug should really be reported against compiz (the window manager used by Unity), not unity. If you can, try ubuntu-bug $(pidof compiz) as the display problem occurs (collects the most info). If you can't or it crashes, try ubuntu-bug compiz. If that crashes too, try apport-cli $(pidof compiz) or apport-cli compiz. If that crashes, report the bug on Launchpad, then run apport-collect N where N is the Launchpad bug number, to try adding info to it. –  Eliah Kagan Jan 18 '13 at 3:57
After reporting the 1st bug, you know what bugreporting commands do and don't work. You can report the ubuntu-bug bug now! The affected package is apport. File the bug on Launchpad. Include all text from the Terminal (it actually documented the crash nicely). Explain in detail which bugreporting commands didn't work. Link to the first bug, in case they turn out related, and to give more info about what triggered the crash. Say you're on 12.10 and give the apport version. Tag the bug quantal. After submitting, try apport-collect N (where, as before, N is the LP bug number). –  Eliah Kagan Jan 18 '13 at 4:08
