I can't reproduce this. Do you have the unredirect_fullscreen_windows option
turned on or not?
Comment 2 Corey Burger 2006-12-19 23:12:50 UTC
It is running off and the default setting for this appears to be off in Feisty.
Comment 3 Daniel Stone 2007-02-27 01:35:11 UTC
Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys.  Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.
Comment 4 Kristian Lyngstøl 2009-02-03 12:29:23 UTC
Can't reproduce. Feel free to re-open at bugs.opencompositing.org if this is still an issue.
Comment 5 You-Cheng Hsieh 2009-02-03 23:51:12 UTC
I can reproduce this bug on the default Xandros OS of EeePC 701, intel driver. Please re-open.
Comment 6 Michel Dänzer 2009-02-04 00:37:01 UTC
It's due to bug 8732, fixed with DRI2. Unredirecting fullscreen windows avoids the problem, but isn't 100% reliable; in some of the cases where it isn't, the 'Toggle Redirect' action of the 'Extra WM Actions' works, but not always either for me. :}
