[Bug 1078859] [NEW] Broken animations in compiz with nvidia proprietary driver


Public bug reported:

When I use the proprietary driver for my nVidia GTX 285 graphics card
Compiz animations don't work properly.

The animation I noticed the most was the minimize zoom animation. When I
minimize a a window the contents of the window instantly vanish but the
boarder fades and zooms out properly.

The strange thing is that if I restore the window before it has finished
minimizing (setting the minimize animation time really long) the window
turns black when it is restored but if I then minimize it again it
minimizes correctly.

The driver I am using is nvidia-current 304.51.really.304.43-0ubuntu1
although I've had this problem with any of the nVidia drivers in the
software center (current, tested, and experimental).

Using the Uouveau driver the animations work but it has other problems
that make me want to use the nVidia driver.

The compiz version is compiz 1:

I am using Ubuntu 12.10 64bit with all updates installed.
