The only thing similar I found suggested the above:

Discovered by accident that it's enabled only in my primary Monitor (despite the fact that one of my secondary monitor's is identical to my primary).

When I happened to move the Vmware Player Windows to my primary, the Enable Unity option was enabled. (Did a little A/B/A test to verify that).
