compiz.real crashed with SIGSEGV in blurDrawWindow()

Bug #353236 reported by Michael Martin-Smucker on 2009-04-01
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
compiz (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: compiz

Sorry, this is almost certainly a dupe, but I can't tell the reports apart, so I'll leave that for one of you wonderful triagers. Anyway, the contents of this report were autogenerated by the crash reporter.

Actually, the crash keeps happening over and over again.

With Jaunty Beta, I enabled transparency for dropdownmenu as well as a blur under the menu. Now every time Banshee changes tracks (and the new notification pops up) compiz crashes.
