Bug Description

Installed Ubuntu 12.04 on a Virtualbox machine with Virtualbox Add-ons installed
I add the elementary OS daily PPA and installed elementary-desktop package and then rebooted.
Since then every time I log in with Pantheon, I get the desktop but some parts of the screen turns into black, it flickers sometimes and compiz even crashed ! Every other app seems to work properly but I can't use them because they're hidden by these black rectangle ( they also become partly replaced by some pieces of the software: instead of an entirely black rectangle, it shows a black rectangle with a button drawn on it or things like that !

Will you plan on adding a fallback mode for the computer with poor graphics capabilities?

We can't implement a proper fallback for Luna because of kernel issues in Ubuntu. Proper fallback is planned for Luna+1. A 2D remix of Luna may be released later.
