[Bug 388716] [NEW] garbage left on screen after "leaf spread" closing animation


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz


I have set up Compiz to use the “Leaf spread” animation for closing
application windows. Occasionally this leaves on the screen part of the
last frame of the animation, as in the screen-shot I'll attach right

(I captured it while in portrait mode, but I'm pretty sure it happens
similarly in landscape mode.)

Note that this doesn't happen all the time, it's rather uncommon. I
might see it a couple times some days, other times it may not happen for
a week. When it does happen, it goes away after most kinds of
interaction other than moving the mouse; usually clicking on a window is

(It was quite hard to get the screen-shot because of that; it happens
rarely, and it took a month before I had the presence of mind to press
the print-screen button before doing anything else. I think even print-
screen removed the effect once.)

I _think_ it happens more often (if not only) with windows that were
full-screen before closing, but since it's happening randomly it's hard
to tell. (I don't redirect full-screen windows, BTW. I'll attach my
compiz config too, just to be sure.)
