[Bug 1019407] [NEW] compiz "glXCreatePixmap failed" makes computer look hardlocked


Public bug reported:


My computer froze, or atleast I thought it did. It was during a close
dialog effect, so while it was fading a window out. I changed to another
vt, found nothing interesting in dmesg or xorg logs, but xsession logs

(gnome-settings-daemon:2465): color-plugin-WARNING **: failed to reset xrandr-LVDS1 gamma tables: gamma size is zero
failed to create drawable
compiz (core) - Warn: glXCreatePixmap failed
compiz (core) - Warn: Couldn't bind background pixmap 0x2c00001 to texture

Over and over. killall -9 compiz made the system work again.
