[Bug 1063690] Re: Unredirect fullscreen windows should be the default for optimal performance


** Description changed:

+ [Impact]
+ Lower than optimal fullscreen applications performance, especially
+ games.
+ [Test Case]
+ Benchmark a game with for example phoronix-test-suite /
+ pts/openarena-1.5.0 - the default settings after this bug fix should
+ give equal performance to what previously required manually enabling the
+ compiz unredirect fullscreen windows option.
+ [Regression Potential]
+ The feature has been tested for the last few months, and all known
+ regressions have been fixed. The potential regressions lie in for
+ example exiting a fullscreen application.
+ ---
  Fullscreen windows should be unredirected by default, since only then
  users will get optimal performance also when running full screen
  applications like games. Currently users need to learn about the compiz
  setting (CompizConfig Settings Manager (package compizconfig-settings-
  manager) -> Composite -> Unredirect Fullscreen Windows), which is going
  to work only for a small portion of the user base, and naturally need
  not to be affected by the bugs currently caused by enabling
  The tagged related compiz bugs:
