Bug Description

In image r243 if you open the settings app you are most likely left with a grey screen. If you give it long enough it will eventually render correctly or if you touch the screen it will render.

Note that system-settings will refresh if there is an available udpate. To prevent that, you need to tweak:

  * Fix not compositing the client's last posted buffer (LP: #1294048,
    LP: #1294051, LP: #1294053, LP: #1290306) In single-display cases
    the number of ready buffers decreases after a buffer is acquired by
    the rendering operator. Determine if there will be uncomposited
    buffers before acquiring a buffer so it works for single and multi
    display use cases. (LP: #1294048, #1290306, #1294051, #1294053)
