Bug description:
  Binary package hint: compiz

  When switching focus from one window to another, the target window may
  become blank. See the attached screenshot, where I opened two gnome-
  terminals and clicked on their titlebars alternately - the issue was
  triggered after about 5-10 clicks. I've had this happen on other
  appications too, e.g. software-centre, empathy, etc.

  1. Minimize a window
  2. Initiate Scale and deactivate it again (press Super+W to show all windows and then press it again to go back to normal)
  3. Click the window icon on the launcher to maximize it again.
  4. The window contents will be white or black depending on the Ubuntu version

  Uncheck CCSM -> Ubuntu Unity Plugin -> Switcher -> Show live previews of windows in the Switcher. Side-effect: scale doesn't show minimized windows.
