Description Nikos Chantziaras 2011-04-01 16:14:58 UTC
(I don't know the category under which this bug should be filed. I simply assume xorg, server/general is OK.)

I updated from xorg-server 1.9.5 to As a result, new windows or dialogs have "pixel garbage" in them when they first appear.  This results in menus that pop-in (like context menus, pop-up menus, selection lists, etc) that are supposed to fade-in in my desktop (KDE 4.6.1) looking broken. For example, when I right-click in Firefox or click on a pop-up list, the "pixel garbage" appears immediately, and only then is a fade-in performed that gradually replaces the garbage with the actual widget.

This does not happen with 1.9.5. My system:

Gentoo Linux AMD64, kernel, radeon DRM with KMS enabled, xf86-video-ati Git master, mesa Git master using Gallium, KDE 4.6.1 with Desktop Effects enabled. The graphics card is a Radeon HD4870.

Sounds like bug 34427.

And indeed it is a duplicate :-)
