What were the steps/stages/commands you did to do this?

Ok I am not sure how to reproduce the error. But as long as I don't restart my machine, the error stays.
I think that if I hover the mouse on the menu then lock the machine. Then hover again on the left edge of the screen. This error occurs.

As for the "show applications" problem. Just click the "show applications" button twice or three times and it will show the apps menu as shown above.
I tried uploading a video but.. size limit.

I hope this helps. Thanks for your fast replies.

Ok... Apparently there is more .. if you check the last two images I uploaded...
Although it is locked,
I can open the applications and places menu.
Read wifi, bluetooth information and control proxy settings. I.e. automatic, manual,none.

Also, I can control sound and brightness which may not be that important but still.

I've also came across with this bug. You just have to move your mouse instead of pressing a keyboard key when the computer is locked.
If you change from "work Area 1" to "work Area 2" the left side bar will pop and You can open and close apps just by right-clicking in the desired applications or just do it in the menu bar.
I'm running a x64 bit version
4.0.0-kali-amd64 (uname output)
