Sounds like an old bug to me. It occured on Karmic with a totally different version of Compiz than the one running Unity.
Can this bug be reconfirmed as a priority for a Karmic SRU and be reproduced before Sam allocates some time to it?

Kate, this is a bug against compiz 0.8, not 0.9, any reason you set a Natty task?

Didier, Didn't know compiz 0.9 would fix it, does it? If so, and its not an issue for Natty, just mark close it. Just didn't want it lurking as unfixed and biting us later.

confirmed on my side. However, it does not actually crash, compiz just gets stuck with a 100% cpu load. Killing compiz and gdm works, but no way of starting libre/openoffice with compiz. On openbox it works fine, tried it just now.

Never had this before, using compiz ever since it existed. Same with open office. Something seems to be wrong with those 'special' kinds of windows like java and the vi window.

Just for the record: This thing can be closed. After deactivating the filewatcher plugin, this behavior vanished.

This bug affects Ubuntu 10.10, Maverick Meerkat. Maverick has reached end-of-life and is no longer supported, so I am closing the bugtask for Maverick. Please upgrade to a newer version of Ubuntu.
