[Bug 1090449] [NEW] Compiz-Experimental PPA corruption with fglrx


Public bug reported:

Using Ubuntu 12.10 with the latest Compiz/Unity builds out of Sam's
Compiz-Experimental Performance PPA and the AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta 11
(fglrx 9.01) driver release on an AMD Radeon HD 6870, I am getting
blinking/corruption on text I enter in the terminal and general
corruption when moving windows. This problem did not exist with the
Unity staging PPA and a Compiz build based on #3527, which also included
the window movement performance improvement. The "can't click on
something in the upper left corner" bug that happens sometimes is still
the same as with the Unity staging PPA.

On the positive side, all corruptions aside, the performance is
absolutely fantastic. It feels buttery smooth like never before.

HERE is a video demonstrating the problem: http://youtu.be/sdtwCFGTLbg
