cairo produces a black background (overriding the gnome wallpaper) in the Activities overview in gnome-shell using the proprietary AMD Catalyst fglrx driver.
Arch Linux, kernel 3.6.4-1
X.Org X Server 1.13.0
GPU AMD Radeon HD 6450 running catalyst-utils 12.9-0.1
- Rolling back to cairo 1.12.2-3 fixes the problem using the AMD Catalyst driver.
- Bug can not be reproduced using cairo 1.12.6-2 with the open-source ati driver (1:6.14.6-2).
I experience exactly the same behavior, but with open-source Intel drivers.
I haven't tried to downgrade cairo, though.
I have to add that this occurs only when I tell the file manager to "handle the desktop" using gnome-tweak-tool.
Oh if was nautilus:

xlib/shm: Need IncludeInferiors when creating the source fallback

The problem is still there on my system with cairo 1.12.14-0ubuntu1 on Ubuntu 13.04, and the fix mentioned by Chris is already included.
In which case, your attention should turn towards Catalyst.
To make clear, the above commit is the trigger or fix?
It was a fix for a very similar issue with -intel.
Thanks for the confirmation. So it should be a different problem for Catalyst.
The issue also can be reproduced on Radeon driver (open-source ati driver 1:7.1.0 ) on my environment.
other system information:
Hello, excuse me for the trivial question but I'm a new arrival, how can I use this fix?

For me bug is sgone on Ubuntu 13.10 with catalyst 13.11.
