[Bug 1516308] Re: Compiz uses 100% CPU when desktop is locked


I am not sure if it's related, but another interesting fact: I left my
Ubuntu box switched on at my workplace, though I can access it via ssh
(and sshfs to mount my home from there). It was more than a week, not to
go to work, more than usual. Screen is locked of course. One thing, the
usual: with utilizing ssh I see that compiz process uses about 100% of
the CPU all the time. Other thing: when I went back to work, I realized
that compiz used 41% of the memory ... So there is some memory leak as
well somewhere. Now I see, that I often have to use "nohup compiz
--replace &" from a terminal (since I don't want to lose the state of my
desktop) every several days, since compiz starts to eat simply too much
memory. After such a compiz replacement, it goes back to the "normal"
and usual memory consumption.  As far as I can tell, compiz seems a
disaster for me, both of CPU and memory usage problems all the time, at
total of three different machines I use, so I don't think it's just a
problem at a given setup too much :(
