performance decreases when more windows or tabs are present are shown with metacity composite

Bug #321296 reported by Jeff Fortin Tam on 2009-01-25
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Running the latest 0.8 package, with an intel 3100 gpu and the drivers in Ubuntu 8.10 and metacity's compositing feature turned on. No additional gnome-do plugins loaded. I have a quadcore cpu and 4 gigs of ram.

When I have lots of windows open (or when those windows consume a lot of processing power?), gnome-do starts lagging. This can be reproduced easily by having gnome-system-monitor running, and a little less easily by having a bunch of apps open: evolution, epiphany with lots of tabs (30+), rhythmbox, xchat-gnome, openoffice.org3 writer.

Minimizing some of the apps (such as epiphany) makes gnome-do entirely fluid again, until you un-minimize the app.

I can confirm this. If I am using for a long time gnome-do, the performance decreases. If now I restart gnome-do, the performance become as fast as at the beginning.
