[Bug 773580] [NEW] Window contents compromised after moving to 11.04


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

I migrated to 11.04 from its predecessor without any obvious error
messages.  When I rebooted the system, the first time, I noticed a pop-
up window that indicated that my hardware did not support the
configuration so I would have to use the Classic settings.  Sorry for
the vagueness but I only saw it once.

The LUCID animated icon normally visible during boot before the desktop
starts is not displayed.  The screen is blank or has some stray pixels
lit.  The desktop starts as it should.

As I brought up my applications, I noticed a variety of errors in the contents of the application windows.  For example:
Firefox:  The url and google boxes obscure the stop and refresh icons.  I thought they were not in the toolbar but when I open the dialog to customize the bar, they appear between the url and google boxes.  When I close the dialog, the url and dialog boxes grow together and the stop and refresh icons are gone.  Note that the chat window scroll bars work as to the browser window scroll bars.

Variety of applications with scroll bars such as the contact window in
Lotus SameTime, the scroll bars are not rendered.  I can scroll the list
of contacts with my mouse's scroller control.

Lotus Notes 8.5.2 is completely hosed.  It cannot display any of the
icons on the home workspace.  Calendar entries do not display.  Mail
documents can show the contents (sometimes) but not the toolbars are not
displayed (the contents are the prior view).  I cannot edit preferences
at all as none of the dialogs display.  The tree structure of the
contents is there but each dialog pane is empty.

The only thing I can cite that may be unusual is that it took HOURS to
download the packages and I did the install with an external monitor
attached.  I selected replace for each config file question.

I am on Ubuntu 11.04 - the Natty Narwhal - released in April 2011 and
supported until October 2012.
