Description Sylvain Pasche 2008-04-09 09:10:34 UTC
I sometimes get Compiz to freeze when doing the following (I also reported it on https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/compiz/+bug/148073):

1) Open Firefox in fullscreen on one screen
2) Open Totem in fullscreen on the other screen

The the UI is frozen and if I connect to the system with ssh, compiz.real is running at 100% cpu.

I could connect from another machine and look around in gdb. I found an infinite loop in paint.c, function paintOutputRegion()

The loop:

    /* detect occlusions */
    for (w = (*walk.last) (screen); w; w = (*walk.prev) (w))

... is never escaped. I didn't check if this was fixed in a newer release (I'm using the 0.7.2 version from Ubuntu Hardy). I can provide more information if needed.

This seems like an incorrect window walker interface usage to me, thus a plugin bug.
Can you please disable the following plugins, each one at a time, and try if this improves the situation:
- Animation
- Cube
- 3D

Can you check if this issue persists with the latest compiz fusion plugins-main?

No issues at all here in git master.
Please reopen if problem persists.
