  [nvidia] Window contents vanish during animations

Bug description:
  When I use the proprietary driver for my nVidia GTX 285 graphics card
  Compiz animations don't work properly.

  The animation I noticed the most was the minimize zoom animation. When
  I minimize a a window the contents of the window instantly vanish but
  the boarder fades and zooms out properly.

  The strange thing is that if I restore the window before it has
  finished minimizing (setting the minimize animation time really long)
  the window turns black when it is restored but if I then minimize it
  again it minimizes correctly.

  The driver I am using is nvidia-current 304.51.really.304.43-0ubuntu1
  although I've had this problem with any of the nVidia drivers in the
  software center (current, tested, and experimental).

  Using the Uouveau driver the animations work but it has other problems
  that make me want to use the nVidia driver.

  The compiz version is compiz 1:

  I am using Ubuntu 12.10 64bit with all updates installed.
