[Bug 760814] Re: Compiz Very Slow and Choppy in Natty Classic


I've done two things, one or both of which seems to have greatly
alleviated the problem (but not solved it completely).

The one was switching from Firefox to Chrome.
The other was enabling in ccsm: Utility -> Detection
(Note, the latter ruined my desktop in that sesson, and I had to restart)

My big suspicion is Firefox... Chrome just seems more efficient at handling all the open Windows.
My system has been running like this for a few days now, so the results are constant.

On another perhaps related note, also since upgrading, the screen often isn't redrawn properly.
It's not consistent... I can do the same thing a few times and sometimes it will happen, sometimes it won't.
e.g. a new window will open, but be almost invisible until i change focus off and back again,
Or, I'll close a window, and the window behind it won't be drawn until I focus that window.
I can't find a separate bug report on this, will file eventually, but wondering if it's related.
