Are all of you other affected on radeon? I have an X700 Mobility (RV410), while the original reporter has an HD3200 (RS780).

Hi! No Radeon here, just an integrated Intel on a Dell Latitude D520 laptop.

I've tried two computers. One with Radeon, another with integrated Intel. Both give same failure in compiz after only short amount of usage.

Thank you for your report!

However, processing it in order to get sufficient information for the
developers failed (it does not generate an useful symbolic stack trace). This
might be caused by some outdated packages which were installed on your system
at the time of the report:

compiz-core: installed version 1:, latest version: 1:
libglibmm-2.4-1c2a: installed version, latest version: 2.27.93-0ubuntu1
x11-common: installed version 1:7.6~3ubuntu1, latest version: 1:7.6~3ubuntu3

Please upgrade your system to the latest package versions. If you still
encounter the crash, please file a new report.

Thank you for your understanding, and sorry for the inconvenience!

I marked this as confirmed since duplicate LP #714837 has up to date software but the same (basically) trace.

I've added the ubuntu nux project since it is also implicated in the traceback.
