Bug reproduction :
- Active compiz specials effects
- Run virtual machine
- Set vm resolution to the same resolution of your host
- Switch to full-screen mode
-> BUG : 
- KVM switch quickly to full-screen mode, and then, switch back to window mode
- It becomes very difficult to control vm mouse (cursor movement very weird)
- If vm resolution switched back to a lower resolution, host mouse pointer is clipped to the vm window (!)
- Vm must be shut down to unclip mouse pointer
No problem when compiz deactivated.
