I am using Xubuntu 13.10 (just updated) and before upgrading to it I installed and configured XFCE to allow for an extra monitor to be used with my laptop. I was hoping that I could remove and reattach the monitor at will when I wished to use it at home and when I wanted to use it on the road.

But, after I disconnected the extra monitor from the laptop, the bottom of my screen bugged out. It flickers and displays the top menu bar (the mouse icon and all the tabs to open my active programs). It is not really a performance issue it is just annoying.

I was wondering if I can maybe restart the driver to get rid of this problem or if it may be something else.

If you wish to see any terminal output please give me the terminal command and I will get the output in edit updates.
