Evince sticks at "Loading..." on start

Bug Description

Binary package hint: evince

Evince displays the "Loading..." screen when it starts upon opening a document, and it doesn't show the document unless the window is either minimised and maximised, or unmaximised. This only happens when running compiz; metacity works fine.

I'm unsure how common this occurrence is for me yet because my testing keeps triggering bug #189257, causing an immediate resize.

Running evince 2.22.0-0ubuntu2 and compiz 1:0.7.2-0ubuntu2 on hardy.

This only happens with compiz, so it is assumed to be a compiz issue. Closing for evince.

I still have not seen this on Intrepid, so I'm pretty sure this has been fixed in compiz 0.7.7. I am therefore closing this issue against compiz (it does not qualify for Hardy SRU). Please reopen against compiz if you experience the problem on Intrepid.

I can now reproduce this issue with evince in metacity, so it's not a compiz issue.
