  [xubuntu] chromium redraw issue after switching workspaces

Status in chromium-browser package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When I switch between workspaces in xubuntu, the chromium windows more
  often than not are only partially visible or else completely
  transparent. Moving the window (hold alt and drag) does not always fix
  the issue, but resizing always does. I've taken a video I will attach
  to the bug.

  Expected: See the chromium window and tabs I have open.
  Actual: Window is invisible or partially invisible. See attached video.
