I've set up another PPA with the patch for testing:

The issue and reason this isn't in Ubuntu (and probably why it's not upstream either), is that I *think* this risks causing regressions for non-fglrx cases. Maybe I'm wrong though, so I've set up this PPA for people to test.

A. What we need is solid proof of the following:

  1. No visible regression on -intel with compiz turned on
  2. No visible regression on -ati with compiz turned on
  3. No visible regression on -nouveau with compiz turned on
  4. No visible regression on -nvidia with compiz turned on
  5. No visible regression on at least one video driver with kde kwin desktop effects turned on

(Don't bother confirming on -fglrx, we already know it's fine there; this bug already has over 400 comments, and if people post more comments it'll just bloat up the bug report to the point where it won't load anymore.)

Alternatively, I could accept either of the following:

  B. Rejigger the patch so its logic is only enabled when the fglrx driver is loaded

  C. Forward the patch upstream to Debian or bugs.freedesktop.org and get it accepted into the upstream xserver, from which we can pull a cherrypick patch.
