As you can see, the downloads stack's progress indicator is at 100%, and is permanently stuck there even after the completion of all downloads. The only way I can remove the progress bar is by restarting dock (killall Dock) or rebooting. Is there any reason this is occurring and/or any way to prevent it?

There's a bug with Google Chrome that seems to have been fixed. Make sure your Chrome is up to date.

It doesn't just happen with Chrome.

FinderDock is a good solution.

Or you can just move the Downloads icon to a different place on the dock, then move it back, that usually fixes it.
