Bug Description

Oneiric i386 b2, logged as gnome-classic

each time i try to make a screenshot, selecting the active window for example, the png is totally black, only the mouse pointer is seen. I've made changes about the color background of this window, even setting it as white, the screenshot is always black. Note that other tool like gimp have no problem to take a good screenshot.
