[Bug 1032276] Re: [nvidia] Graphics freeze when I close or minimize a window


I too have this bug and I can confirm that it's related to Compiz
drawing the desktop (Nautilus show desktop disabled).

I have it in 13.04 and 13.10 running in VirtualBox and also booting the
ISO image with Grub entry created by grml-rescueboot. It happens with
NVIDIA drivers (tested on 13.04) and Nouveau, LLVMpipe and VirtualBox
drivers (tested on 13.10).

The easiest way to reproduce this bug is to open terminal (it must be
the only visible window). Then type nautilus -q which will temporarily
kill Nautilus (desktop will be rendered with Compiz). The last step
minimize or close terminal window.

This results  in animation hang and entire desktop hang. Unity doesn't
respond on keys being pressed (Super, Alt (Tap), Alt + F2 or F10). When
the desktop finally returns to normal I see all those actions that I
triggered before (Dash opening, HUD opening and so on).

You received this bug notification because you are a member of compiz
