Cannot start desktop session with compositor enabled


Description bug.spencor 2019-07-06 22:38:28 CEST
Created attachment 8729 

This is a copy of the Ubuntu bug I created: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xfwm4/+bug/1835622

"I cannot login to the Xfce desktop session anymore. in ~/.xsession-errors there's the message:

xfwm4: ../src/mesa/drivers/dri/i965/intel_mipmap_tree.c:1285: intel_miptree_match_image: Assertion `image->TexObject->Target == mt->target' failed.

Earlier today Mesa was upgraded via bionic-updates from 18.2 to 19.0.

I'm running Xubuntu 18.04 and I'm also using the Xubuntu Staging PPA with xfwm4 4.13.3"

Some additional notes:
- I had occasional crashed of xfwm or the panel, but those did not affect functionality
- Before the upgrade today I had no problems logging in to the Xfce Desktop
- Disabling the compositor in xfwm resolved the issue
- Else than the Xubuntu Staging PPA I also have: 
  * deb http://www.ui.com/downloads/unifi/debian stable ubiquiti
  * deb http://repo.mongodb.org/apt/ubuntu xenial/mongodb-org/3.4 multiverse  (I just saw the xenial here. Seems to be wrong. But probably not related to that bug here)

Those were the upgrades from today:

Comment 2 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2019-07-07 20:15:09 CEST
This is an issue in Mesa DRI driver for Intel, that shows when Mesa is built with asserts() enabled (typically debug).
