Comment 0 for bug 963093

With Unity- and Compiz trunks I am seeing some odd flickering and corruption on the Unity UI elements. In particular:

 - Some reactangles of white tints flickering smoothly up an down on the launcher

 - The tooltip shadows grow smoothly (maybe taking 1s) to their full size

 - The panel/menubar drop shadow also seems to gradually repaint, also looking sort of animated

Attaching a screencast to illustrate. The screncast didn't very well capture how white tints on the launcher, but you can glimpse hints of it. Otherwise the tooltip shadows and panel drop shadow animation is very clear.
