[Bug 528499] [NEW] compiz open animation and qt apps lead to flickering


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

When a new window is open, what appears to happen is:

a) the window is drawn immediately
b) the window is removed
c) the window is redrawn using the appropriate compiz affect

In the video attached, I'm using scribus, but the same effect happens
with other Qt apps.  As you can see, on selecting the file menu, the
menu appears, then disappears, then slowly fades in (via compiz setting
that I set to be quite high to emphasis the problem)

I was looking for a work around (ie to turn the compiz affect of for all
Qt windows, but I couldn't work out how to do that ...
