Bug Description

Metacity nows leaves a black box when you minimize windows during a period of
high CPU use. Its really ugly. The only way I have found to fix it is to run
xcompmgr, and that only works sometimes. Thanks in advance.

I think it is related to gtk/cairo, I remember some entry in a changelog about it.
