[Bug 888827] [NEW] Compiz memory usage causing lag


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Using Ubuntu 11.10, compiz is causing major lag when moving windows.

Any window movement will lag the system to a crawl. If you move windows
fast enough, it will eventually lose track of where the mouse pointer
is, and you end up moving the window without being on the titlebar. This
is a major problem, because it is causing other things to lag because of
compiz using an extraordinary amount of memory. It has actually jumped a
couple of times to using over 90% of the memory on my system (with 4GB
of RAM), which is unacceptable. I can only imagine what this is doing to
people with 2GB of RAM or less.
