[Bug 1034256] [NEW] SDL/OpenGL program (Frogatto) gets erratic behavior when resizing


Public bug reported:

This issue affects Frogatto: 2d adventure game, #frogatto on freenode, www.frogatto.com
When entering Frogatto's editor, which uses a different window size, Unity gets stuck flickering between the game's window size and the editor's, for several seconds, until settling on either.

Given the following exchange on #ubuntu-unity, this issue also affects
QEMU and KVM, which also use SDL for graphics.

<thumper> marcavis: what toolkit does the editor use?
<duflu> marcavis: I've seen the same bug happen with QEMU/KVM windows. It's probably compiz to blame.
<marcavis> hmmm, makes sense... Frogatto just uses SDL/OpenGL, no specific GUI toolkits
<duflu> marcavis: Yes, QEMU/KVM uses SDL too
<duflu> marcavis: I can't remember if there ever was a bug for it. Please log one with "ubuntu-bug compiz"
