[Bug 1636695] [NEW] Desktop freezes when there's an application on fullscreen and you switch workspaces


Public bug reported:

I can reproduce this bug whenever I want:

Open either a picture, or a movie. It does not matter the application
(tested on gthumb, eog, vlc, mpv, totem).

Put it on fullscreen.

Switch workspaces a few times. Anything from just one to four switches
and the desktop freezes.

Going to console, top and htop shows compiz eating CPU at ~200-300%

syslog shows this sometimes:

Oct 21 16:44:14 vanhalen kernel: [  870.793315] NVRM: Xid (PCI:0000:01:00): 13, Graphics Exception: ChID 0003, Class 00008597, Offset 0
00015e0, Data 00000000

If I kill compiz I loose my session.

Thanks in advance.
