[Bug 153204] Re: [MASTER] Applications are flickering/flashing in full screen mode


I recently ran into this bug with my nvidia 185.18.36 driver for my GTX
260 running an up-to-date copy of Ubuntu Karmic. while finding a
workaround to enabling fullscreen Youtube videos with opera and Firefox.

The fix states to uncheck the 'undirect fullscreen windows' option,
which did indeed work. However this created some horribly choppy
behaviour in Wolfenstein:Enemy Territory. So as a benchmark I would like
to suggest it, the game itself doesn't display a loss in FPS, but you
will notice objects 'jumping' when you move around the map.

For the time being I've rechecked the option in compiz, which fixes the
jumping in ET but I do miss my fullscreen Youtube vids.
