Mr. Anderson, ;-)

Four reasons I likely didn't file 955293 against 886699...

1. Bug search didn't yield a suitable match....

"boinc manager menu disappears" (955293)
"Black box at top left of boinc manager window" (886699)

2. Different version of BOINC altogether...
boinc-manager 7.0.14+dfsg-1 (955293)
boinc 6.12.33+dfsg-1.1 (886699)

3. Different architecture...
Linux 3.2.0-18-generic x86_64 (955293)
Linux 3.0.0-12-generic i686 (886699)

4. Different Ubuntu version with different end goals...
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (955293)
Ubuntu 11.10 (886699)

If you believe this is a mistake... my bad.

IMHO, I believe the 12.04 LTS release is completely different than the 
11.10 or 11.04 releases. They are wholly intended for different 
installation types... focused on longevity. BOINC is *not* a mission 
critical component however if I have servers running in a data center 
and they get little to no use over night I still pay for them being 
there. I can give the BOINC daemon a niceness suitable to utilizing my 
hardware only when nothing business centric is using it already. There 
are others out there that do the same. I filed the bug with output 
mostly for the 12.04 LTS release. The boinc manager is not make or break 
in terms of boinc usage... I contributed to help out... nothing more. ;-)

Thank you,
