[Bug 928248] [NEW] Major graphical artifacts in unity using latest rc compiz build on fglrx


Public bug reported:

When using the latest compiz tarball, the system works fine until the
unityshell plugin is enabled. Once enabled, the launcher and panel are
visible, but instead of any graphics, black rectangles can be seen
everywhere. Instead of the dash, a big black rectangle is visible as
well. Some of those rectangles blink depending on what operation is
being performed. For instance - a newly opened window has some black
rectangles on the title bar, but the main screen is ok - until it gets
refreshed by, for instance, scrolling with the mouse. It becomes hidden
behind a black rectangle then.

Using latest unity + compiz with the new ABI.

>From what I have been informed, this only happens on ATI cards using
fglrx. The same packages used on a system with an Nvidia card seem to
work normally.

Ubuntu precise (development branch) 12.04
Self-packaged compiz 0.9.7-rc1 and unity 5.2.0-0ubuntu1 with an aditional packaging fix from Didier for using the new compiz ABI

Tested on:
fglrx = the bug appears
nvidia = the bug is not present
Untested on intel cards.

** Affects: compiz (Ubuntu)
