[Bug 1656328] [NEW] Screen redrawing freezes on animations


Public bug reported:

I have used Compiz 0.8.4 for a three years and upgraded it to 0.9.13
just after it appeared in official Debian Stretch repo. 0.9.13 worked
almost fine though it needed reconfiguration. But after reboot I
frequently get freezes on animations; not only Compiz ones but also
GTK+3 (ripple effect), Firefox tab animations, probably on any active
screen refreshes. The input is still processed, even the mouse cursor is
moved but all the screen image keeps static and continues repainting
only after I go to tty1 and back. I did not notice such issue if running
another WM instead, f.e., Openbox. Checking and unchecking options of
OpenGL plugin does not help. Looks similar to the old bug #353514.

System: Linux localhost 4.8.0-2-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.8.11-1 (2016-12-02) x86_64 GNU/Linux
