Bug Description

Binary package hint: compiz

Just upgraded to Intrepid, found that the titlebars of windows are often corrupted with desktop effects turned on.

$ apt-cache policy compiz
compiz:
  Installed: 1:0.7.7+git20080807-0ubuntu12
  Candidate: 1:0.7.7+git20080807-0ubuntu12
  Version table:
 *** 1:0.7.7+git20080807-0ubuntu12 0
        500 http://ubuntu.virginmedia.com intrepid/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

I'm using the "recommended" NVIDIA version 177 driver with a NVIDIA 7600GS.

FYI, this is a regression since Hardy. I didn't have display corruption before upgrading to intrepid.
