Scrolling problems with compositor option enabled


Description Pkunk 2004-11-25 08:47:05 CET
When i'm using firefox , all the shadows come up great , but in some complex
pages with heavy tables , it doesn't scroll right.

If i keep scrolling down it works fine and scrolls pretty smoothly. But if i
scroll up using the scroll-wheel or the scrollbar the whole firefox window gets
corrupted with "clipping" bugs. This problem doesn't seem to occur in simple
html pages.

The same problem is visible in rdesktop (terminal services client) . if i try to
move a window inside the main rdesktop window , the area within that window gets
completely corrupted with clipping bugs.

When i posted this bug i was having nvidia-kernel drivers 61.11 .

But just today i upgraded to the latest 66.xx nvidia-kernel drivers and i'm
pleased to say almost all the problems i noticed are now gone.

gkrellm2 and other odd shaped windows work mostly ok now. Just when i change to
an odd shaped skin some of the sorrounding area gets corrupted but once i move
the window around it is perfect.

Even the nasty scrolling bug in firefox is now gone.

The only problem i see now is the clipping bug in rdesktop. Who knows , its
probably more xorg/nvidia driver related than xfce4wm related.

All i can say is UPGRADE TO NVIDIA 66.xx DRIVERS NOW. Even the transparent
windows are 20X faster to move around.

This sounds like it may be resolved. I'm reasonably sure this is an Xorg bug.

Unless proven innocent, I'm going to blame XOrg for this.
