with an Intel graphic card but i do. Because of that I always had the
problem highlighted in the bug 879762, info in attachment and here:

Now, thanks to the hard work of Xorg guys, it is possible to finally
fix this nasty problem.

this is what I did (in my case I am on a Ubuntu 11.10 32bit ):

I hope this helps
