When two windows overlap and you select the window that is in the background, the outline (shadow maybe) of the old foreground window remains on the newly selected window. This is slightly annoying.... especially on white windows such as www browsers. Using a NVIDIA Geforce5600 Ultra with composite.

Can you tell a bit more about the Xorg version, and the nVidia driver version too?

Sorry, it was a bit cryptic.
X Window System Version 6.8.2
Release Date: 9 February 2005
Just been experimenting a bit and it all comes down to the focus follows mouse option. It seems when using that option in the window manager settings the windows do not get redrawn properly while click to focus works. Hope this helps.
Ah, it's what I thought, that's a known Xorg 6.8 bug. Composite and fixes in Xorg 6.8 were fairly new and experimental. The compositor in xfwm4 4.4 tests for the version and disable itself on Xorg 6.8.
Please switch to a more recent version. Otherwise, there is a patch for Xorg 6.8 that fixes that issue.
Please see some of the relevant bug reports in Xorg bugzilla:
And the patch for Xorg 6.8.x here:
Just upgraded to Xorg 7.1 and still the bug is there. I think its a focus problem when it follows the mouse. Maybe I need to try out the beta of xfce to see if that clears things up.
Can you try this one instead?
Just installed the suggested version 4.2.4 from the link and what ever has been changed did the trick. Many thanks....
