[Bug 447238] [NEW] Fading windows offset during fade in Compiz


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

Ubuntu Karmic Beta, up to date
Compiz 0.8.3

Some types of windows do not properly fade out, they seem to offset
upwards and to the left about 10 pixels during the fade-out animation.

So window is in (x,y) position, i close it and as soon as the fade
starts it pops into (x-10,y-10) position on screen. This only happens
during the fade out animation.

This is most easily recreatable in Update Manager during the "Check for
updates" sequence.

I ran "xprop" and the window type affected seems to be Dialog type.
Other windows, such as Normal and Tooltip, are not affected.

This occurs with default, "Normal"-type Desktop Effects settings. Filing under compiz because the problem disappears when using Metacity.
