[Bug 444967] [NEW] Screen flickers every 5-10 seconds with compiz and nvidia


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

Description:	Ubuntu karmic (development branch)
Release:	9.10

  Installed: 1:0.8.3+git20091005-0ubuntu5
  Candidate: 1:0.8.3+git20091005-0ubuntu5
  Version table:
 *** 1:0.8.3+git20091005-0ubuntu5 0
        500 http://ubuntu.media.mit.edu karmic/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G73 [GeForce Go
7600] (rev a1)

This is with the nvidia 185 drivers.  However, the problem also happened
in Jaunty with the 180 drivers and compiz 0.8.2.

When compiz is enabled, the screen flickers black every 5-10 seconds
(the flicker lasts perhaps 1/10 second).  This does not happen when
compiz is disabled.
