[Bug 768627] [NEW] Regression: curve mode for compiz expo plugin is broken


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

I use the 270.41 nvidia driver on a 64-bit natty in classic gnome

The curve mode in the compiz expo plugin seems to be broken. When
activated through ccsm, instead of a lovely arch I get flat boards, as
seen in the attached screenshot. This is the situation ever since I
upgraded to natty several months ago.
