Screenshot plugin + unityshell: Screenshot selection rectangle disappears when mouse stops moving

Bug Description

Note: This bug is just reproducable with unityshell plugin enabled.

[How to reproduce]

1. Enable screenshot plugin
2. Activate the screenshot, draw the selection box
3. Hold the mousebutton and stop moving

[What you would expect to happen]

The selection box should be visible until you release the button and actually take the screenshot.

[What actually happens]

If unityshell is enabled, Unity's constant whole-screen-damaging confuses Compiz and makes the selection rectangle disappear.

Workaround: Disable unityshell plugin.
