Re: [Bug 288822] Re: Slight ripping of video when compiz is enabled
*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 212587 ***
Hai, can you think of any test to determine if vsync is working? When
I move windows rapidly, and then do printscreen, i get massively
distorted images. Fedora also seems to be effected, yet this glitch?
never happens on windows xp.

What do you think?
