Bug Description

Compiz Fusion momentarily freezes while doing regular desktop oriented tasks. Animation stops and in 3-5 seconds continues. No pattern.

Where you running a CPU intensive process when this happened?

No. It stops in the middle of common tasks. In fact I leave a cpu and
network monitor on my top panel. I don't REMEMBER seeing any unusual
activity. I am running a Turion 64 x2 dual 2x1.8 ghz on 32 bit Gutsy. It is
a Laptop. HP Pavilion w/ Geforce Go 6150 shared memory graphics. Also a SCSI
hard drive. 1024 GB ram. On every release of Ubuntu so far I have had to add
the NOAPIC NOLAPIC option at initial boot. In the last 6 mos i have never
experienced this with Feisty.

I am having a similar bug but it happens even compiz is turned off. Are you sure this is compiz related ?

I have just tested it with compiz turned off. Apparently its a generic thing. I have attached a little python program that causes the behavior. When you mouse over the menu, everything should freeze for 10 seconds.

I have the same problem on my computer, however, it usually occurs when I get back on my computer after having been away from it for a while (several hours); it almost always freezes in such circumstances and does also occasionally freeze when I'm in the middle of doing something. I'm not sure what exactly causes the freeze; currently, I'm running the most recent Compiz update & 64bit Gutsy beta on an MSI K8N Neo4-F motherboard, an AMD Athlon 64 4000+ (single core) CPU, and 2Gb of PC3200 RAM (in case it is somehow hardware related).

Regarding my above comment, I also am using an Nvidia GeForce 7300GS video card with the nvidia-glx-new, driver version 100.14.19.

I also have that momentarily freeze as described.

Nvidia GeForce 7300GS and up2date Gutsy.

Me too, but only with compiz on.

Nvidia GeForce 6150 LE and Gutsy.

Please remove this bug for me. The issue was the default 'on demand' cpu
scaling policy in ubuntu. When I turn up the cpu speed everything runs
smoothly. Thanks.

I really think its an compiz bug, disabling the compiz animation plugin fixed it.

I had the same issue with Ubuntu Edgy and compiz, but never with beryl. Also I have the same effect when using an ATI x800 based video card and radeon or fglrx video drivers.

I also suggest labeling this as a bug in compiz.

Bug is not reproducable, leaving the PC idle for some time seems to increase the probability. I have subscribed this launchpad entry, so if I can do something for a developer (e.g. get logs or try patches), please post here.

I also tried the Compiz version which is in gutsy-backports, but that did not help.

My original problem with occasional 'compiz lag' was due to the poor
performance of the 'On Demand' feature that is default with cpu scaling. I
did a sudo dpkg-reconfigure gnome-applets after i placed the cpu speed
applet on the panel. That allowed me to turn up the juice and i haven't had
a problem since. My bug should be removed.
