Overview display problem in Gnome with 2 different Monitor resolutions

Description of problem:
I have 2 monitors with different resolutions (see attachment "monitor resolutions". Now then I go to the overview mode (super key) the background image is wrong scaled. (See attachments). It looked like the original background image no scaled and only it darkened, but another copy of the background image is overlayed with a wrong scaling.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 19, Gnome-shell "gnome-shell.x86_64 0:3.8.4-1.fc19"
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect 2 monitors with different resolutions
2. go to overview mode (super/windows key)
The background image of the bigger monitor resolution is wrong scaled (to the resolution of the smaller monitor resolution size) and overlayed to the original background image.
The background image of both screens should only darkened without scaling.
Maybe there is a dependency of the main monitor screen and the second monitor screen:
My configuration of the 2 monitors are so, that gnome/x.org priorisies my smaller monitor as main monitor (HDMI-3) and the bigger one as second monitor (DVI-0). So I changed the monitor order in gnome settings to the bigger one as my main desktop and the lower one as second desktop. I couldn't change the monitor cables to the graphics card ports, because my big monitor has only a DVI-port.
Maybe this is an unnessecary dependency in gnome to compute window-/background-scalings in overview mode?

Background images on the 2 desktops (this is not ok)
Oh. I updated my system now and with the package "gnome-shell.x86_64 0:3.8.4-2.fc19" it is fixed. I close this bug.
Sorry and thank you for the good work
