[Bug 434963] [NEW] Compiz no longer resizes windows properly as before, since version 0.8.2-0ubuntu16 (Karmic)


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz


I'm part of the Cairo-Dock team. Cairo-Dock is (more than :) ) a dock
using Cairo/OpenGL backend. It needs a composite support and it worked
very well until this last month on Ubuntu Karmic : some flashes appear
(rarely) when the window used by Cairo-Dock is resized. In fact Cairo-
Dock resizes its window when the dock is active.

I saw this bug last month (~28 Aug) and it seems that it's not a bug due to Cairo-Dock. I haven't any problem on Jaunty and I use Karmic from the beginning. I've also tested with a previous version of Cairo-Dock and the problem is the same. The problem is also present with the last release of Compiz (0.8.3+git20090917-0ubuntu1).
I guess it's due to the 0.8.2-0ubuntu16 release. You can look at the diff file : http://launchpadlibrarian.net/30801086/compiz_1:0.8.2-0ubuntu15_1:0.8.2-0ubuntu16.diff.gz

For more informations about Cairo-Dock and its installation, look there

Thanks for your help and for your great project !
