I've been trying to figure out what causes the corruption of the display when using the compositing manager in the metacity WM. So far I can see this only when compositing is enabled and it also happens with compiz it seems.
Got a screenshot here:
Compiled the latest code from git and tested it. The kernel is 2.6.24-rc6 based.
Please provide the following info:
specific machine model if applicable.

Xorg log file
This is Xorg.log when compositing is disabled. I don't think that should differ from the case where it's enabled though?
Bugzilla Upgrade Mass Bug Change
NEEDSINFO state was removed in Bugzilla 3.x, reopening any bugs previously listed as NEEDSINFO.
using xserver git? Could you try current tip with Michel's patch? And which version of mesa are you using?
I tried compiz on my 945gm yesterday with all tips, which seems work fine.
I'm rejecting this bug due to no response from the bug reporter. Please reopen with response to comment# 6. thanks.
