[Bug 876198] [NEW] When switching workspaces with rotate/cube previous Ws contents are momentarily displayed


Public bug reported:

this started appearing right after the release of unity-4.20.0-0ubuntu1
The symptoms are pretty much the same as seen in this bug though the issue with the workspace switcher(expo) started a bit earlier & at that point rotate/cube was still ok
bug 861088
The above bug seems to have been fixed with compiz-1:0.9.6+bzr20110929-0ubuntu4/5 but the issue remains when using rotate/cube instead of wall

The flashing is seen in all means of switching with rotate, ie. crtl+alt=arrow keys, scroll on desktop, ect.
It's possible that this is confined to nvidia, other commeters can confirm that one way or the other
