Bug Description

Under gala, plank behaves as if there is no compositing. All edges are square instead of rounded.

GNOME's confirmations and Unity's overlay scrollbars are also affected.

I've noticed this only happens sometimes... very odd.

I'm not seeing this anymore, which is interesting. Can anyone confirm it's still an issue?

I do. But only with granite's popovers, so perhaps it's their fault. Plank and any other app that requires compositing works just fine.

Is anyone still able to reproduce it?
If so, please reopen.

This means we can have the check back in Granite.Popovers?

No, but there are no visual problems anymore. :)
