[Bug 444139] [NEW] Background and full screen apps don't show up when Normal Visual Effects on (Radeon 7500)


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

Ubuntu 9.10 - When turning on "Normal Effects", after the driver
finishes loading, the desktop wallpaper disappears and except for the
top and bottom panels, the screen is black.  Also full screening flash
based applications from within Firefox causes the screen to go black.
Same machine, Jaunty worked perfectly with desktop effects on.  In
addition, effects themselves are extremely slow in comparison with
Jaunty.  All of this makes me suspect that there is a problem with the
compositing interaction and the direct rendering drivers for AGP Radeon

Not sure how I can help, but willing to perform other tests and provide
results if it will help diagnose the issue.

Have attached Xorg.0.log to hopefully help narrow this down a little.
