As you can see in the image, launcher and my panel look a bit glitchy when I open dash. I have used unity-tweak-tool to set the transparency to static blur on dash, and this always worked in the past. I'm not sure what graphics drivers I was before, it was just whatever was installed by default after installing Ubuntu. Since updating to the Nvidia binary proprietary drivers (v331.38) every else has worked fine except things getting a bit glitchy when I open dash.

Does anyone recognize this kind of glitch?

I don't have an answer, but for what it's worth, you're not alone. I'm running an older Nvidia 9600 GT and I noticed the same thing.
