Bug Description

Mesa 7.9 fixes a bug where clients would receive swap_event XEvents when the client had not requested them. When they are available, clutter uses these events to drive the main timer. However, when applications that use clutter set up their own event handling they don't necessarily request these events.

The attached debdiff contains (a slight backport of) the upstream patch which fixes this by always selecting for the events clutter needs.

I'm confident that this fixes bug #638808, but I've pushed a package to https://edge.launchpad.net/~raof/+archive/aubergine for others to test this.
