Flash player full-screen stays on only for a second if focus follows mouse

Bug Description

Displaying Flash fullscreen videos with desktop effects and focus follows mouse enabled causes the Flash fullscreen display to last only for a second and returning to traditional windowed mode. This behaviour can be seen on any Flash site, like Youtube.

If Focus follows mouse or desktop effects are disabled, this problem disappears. This problem didn't exist in 8.10.

Another trick is to disable setting "Unredirect Fullscreen Windows" in Compiz configuration. This, however, seems to slow down video display a lot.

I have buy a new tower (for PC).
First i have install Adobe Flash Player 10
I have followed the instructions :
Second : I have activate the Proprietary driver Nvidia 9500 GT graphic card .
Third : I have actived Compiz-Fusion .
And no more problem with Full-screen !

May be the bug appears with people who hadn't install Adobe Flash player 10 first .
