[Bug 1100456] Re: Every screen change triggers full screen XDamage event


I can't see any bug in your test program right now. But I also can't
explain it.

If the root window was constantly getting damaged though, Show Repaint
would be flashing the whole screen and Compiz' CPU would be higher.

I see two possible explanations:
 1. A bug in your program (which I can't see)
 2. Compiz is choosing to ignore damage to the root window (which I doubt, because it does smoothly respond to root window redraws)

Both seem quite unlikely. Maybe there's a third explanation... ?
