I have Oneiric running in Virtualbox with Unity (3D), it's up todate as of now. When I go to the Dash to find an app I have to click a small arrow to show all the apps in that category.

Dash - Show more apps

Once I click it, it shows all the apps during the current session. However, after rebooting I have to click the arrow again to show all apps.

Is there anything I could do to save this 'Show all apps' settings permanently?
