- change ws
- open the ws overview again

-> it's colored

- close the app
- open the ws overview

-> the ws is still displayed colored

Confirmed. I believe the offending code is an Ubuntu distro patch to the expo plugin. The bug does not exist in upstream compiz.

Won't fix in quantal. Distro rejects all massive code reshuffles like this. Someone would have to dissect 100_expo_layout.patch and find/remove the exact section causing this bug.
