Bug Description

Window movement gets slower over time and CPU usage of compiz can increase due to the fact that shadow clipping becomes
more and more complex as time passes.

Hmm, interesting. This might be the cause of bug 888039.

Would the proper way to see if it is indeed bug 888039 be to disable window decorations? I can deal with using keyboard shortcuts to handle windows for a while without borders if it helps science :).
