[Bug 1027211] [NEW] Compiz 0.9.8 very bad performance


Public bug reported:

I'm running ubuntu 12.10 with a Geforce Gtx680 + 2600k + 8gb, and compiz
performance is awful in the desktop and playing games.

Dragging a window across the desktop is a pain, because it stutters so
much it's not even funny. Compiz doesn't have this behavior, so
something got broken in this release.

Now, about opengl games. It's also a terrible experience, and no matter
what settings I try there's always a lag feel. Games simply don't run
smooth, despite the frame rate that shows on screen. This behavior is
present in both 0.9.8 and

By running ubuntu without any effects (gnome classic panel) games run
super smooth without any lag or stutter.

By the way, I'm running 304.22 driver with default settings, but all
previous drivers show the same behavior.
