Ever since I installed 11.04 I've been having this freaking problem with the Unity launcher. I don't know what the hell I do - but, initially, when I boot Ubuntu, the autohide works. And then - I have no clue how - I go over to the sidebar with my mouse, and for some reason, it won't autohide again and overlap all windows that I work with. It's f...ing annoying; and I seem to be too noobish to configure it. I got myself CompizConfig Settings Manager, but even there, the setting is on 'dodge windows' - the default. And it won't work either when I put it on 'autohide' or any of the other settings. How can I fix this?

I think you encountered this bug that has been fixed but not released.
If you want to test the fix, the simplest way is to enable proposed packages.
