If I have two monitors, side by side, then the Unity bar will interfere with mouse movement. I set the unity bar to only display if I move the mouse to the top left corner of the screen, but the mouse still pauses momentarily when I move the mouse from the right display to the left display. The place it pauses, is exactly on the left border of the right screen.

  • That did the trick, thanks. Ah, there is still a small delay the, to give unity the option to come out of autohide, but the pain is gone!
