[Kali] Panel shitfts gradually and can't see shortcuts


Hello, I'm having a problem on Kali Linux. I've added some shotcuts to the top panel but it shifts to the left from time to time until I cannot see anything I cant even click on Applications menu because it clicks the shortcut behind it.

Example:

It fixes when I log out and log in again. I'm looking for a permanent solution, any help?

Thanks.

is this a live install to an encrypted usb ( with persistence)
the recommended install for the normal use of this OS

or to the hard drive on a laptop for use with wireless ( it's other use )

well what is this unknown hardware ?
laptop ( cheep or high-end)
desktop ( cheep or high-end)

nvidia ATI or intell graphics ?
or a hi-bread "chip" that needs bumblebee

most of Kali is CUDA enabled so NOT having a very good nvidia card is not good

pulling teeth

what one ?
what are the specs

this is one rather low end NETbook

remove Gnome3 and the failsafe fall back mode and install lxde ,a lighter weight desktop enviroment



kali is a very special purpose OS

normally "Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS 64-bit" is installed
