[Bug 1675678] [NEW] Windows borders, controls (minimize, etc.) broken


Public bug reported:

A few days ago, I started having this very nasty bug: when it crashes, the borders of windows, the window controls and other things related to compiz (I think) started to not work any more. I do not know why, but it forces me to log-out/restart and in some point it will occur again (cannot find the connection). Not sure when this started as I used the Intel graphics for a while, and I only discovered it when I switched back to nvidia graphics, for better performance.
See the screenshot. If you have any solution, please tell, this is a nogo :(
