[Bug 907229] Re: Compiz after resume : stucked windows with big arrows decoration


I have exactly the same EEE PC 1015PX and this bug has caused me great
irritation. Sometimes suspending and resuming works fine few times a row
and then seemingly randomly those arrows appear when resuming. This can
be reproduced by simply suspending and resuming many times, but I think
it needs to have a right hardware because I can't reproduce it with my
another pc which has the same Ubuntu version 11.10.

I did some inspection and those arrows are called Unity Grab Handles.
They may have something to do with the bug, but even though I disabled
them in Compiz Settings Manager, my Desktop comes totally unresponsive
when resuming - as often as with grab handles. When this happens cursor
looks like a hand, but I can't move anything. Moving a mouse works and
moving the cursor near border of the screen makes it look like I have
dragged something to fill half of the screen. Orange box appears then
but thats all I can do with my desktop and no resizing actually happens.

This has likely something to do with a bug #913585, but I am new here so
I don't know how marking a duplicate works.

When this bug happens instead of restarting whole X server you can save
your open windows by restarting only Unity in virtual terminal
(alt+ctrl+f1). Command to do that is:

DISPLAY=:0 unity --replace &
