Screenshot of overview with truncated right edge

Description of problem:
Since a recent update of gnome-shell, the overview is stretched too far too the right, meaning that the search box and the application categories are truncated and the workspace area is not visible at all.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Move pointer to hot corner/press Super/click Activities
2. Click Applications
3. Observe
Actual results:
Workspaces area is displayed offscreen. Search box is chopped off at the right. Applications categories are chopped off at right.

Expected results:
Workspaces area is displayed partially onscreen, search box is fully visible, applications menu is fully visible

Additional info:
This problem has only been occurring since a recent update. I have a dual head set up, with the primary screen on the right. With the primary on the left, things are still displayed too far over, but are visible on the right hand monitor (see attached screenshots)

This bug persists even with all gnome-shell extensions disabled.

Gnome-shell is obviously calculating the width of the overview incorrectly, yet all other screen components are properly sized, and the mouse cannot move further right than the display edge.

Bug seems to be fixed in F16/Gnome 3.2.
