Never noticed it, but I do too. You will notice it more or less depending on the color desk top. As I said I have the same thing, but not too noticable because of the desktop background.

No streaking here, but I haven't tried it with different desktops. Is it possible that it is due to the video drivers?

It is normal effect, and if you didn't have it, something would be wrong.

Hmm, since I don't have it, then you are saying that something is wrong? I don't think so.

It can be seen, more or less, depending on the desktop colors etc. I never saw it until this post. I look very closely and it is there.

The ray of light is extended from the taskbar isn't it?

Attachment 1 is of the normal view, and attachment 2 is with show desktop, and you can see where the ray of light starts.

So looks like this is normal.

Same again, but with a solid black background...

Odd, because I never saw this before a moment ago, when I moused over it with an app maximized, doing the same thing with all windows minimized...no streaking.
