Bug Description

When using Nvidia 313.09 and 313.18 drivers, closing windows often causes black areas around the disappearing window. This happens quite randomly, though there are windows that are affected more often (in my case this was the "System Settings" window).
I found a way to reproduce the bug more likely: Pressing the close button and alt+f4 simultaneously.
The following video shows this effect (you can see: sometimes it happens, sometimes not):

Confirmed.

This is due to our usage of external pixmaps from the decorators - if it is deleted on the decorator side, drivers that use loose binding (like the nvidia driver) will make the contents of their textures undefined immediately.

compiz (1:0.9.9~daily13.02.26-0ubuntu1) raring; urgency=low

  [ Sam Spilsbury ]
  * debian/ccp_plugin.patch:
    - Added new option --no-auto-load-ccp to prevent the ccp
      plugin from autoloading. Useful for tests where having
      this behaviour just causes problems from unwanted side-effects
    - Also adjust test framework to pass the new option
    - Fix typo
  * debian/rules:
    - We already auto-load the ccp plugin, no need to add it to the
      default plugins.
  * debian/control:
    - Add xorg-gtest, xserver-xorg-dev, libxi-dev as build-deps
  * debian/ubuntu_config.patch:
    - Adjust EWMH test for new value
