Bug Description

While testing 2.99.903 I hit this bug, which isn't actually a regression since 2.21.14 at least, since I can only reproduce it on my sandybridge laptop, not on ivybridge or haswell.

So opening a html5 video from youtube with chromium and putting it fullscreen works fine. When I exit the fullscreen mode though, only the browser window contents are refreshed, everything else shows remnants of the video. Clicking on the desktop returns things to normal.

since it only happens on sandybridge (didn't test on gen4 yet, don't have gen5) I guess it's a driver bug.

currently on tip of master btw, not rc3.

Whether or not it is screenshottable would be of interest.

Any magic required? Flipping in and out of the new hobbit trailer works for me.

Timo Aaltonen (tjaalton) wrote :

yes it is, I'll attach an example

also, it doesn't happen if the chromium window is maximized, or in fact it only happens if the window is fully on the same workspace, not if it overflows to the workspace below/next.

My first thought (ok, second after going, no, no please don't let this be a driver bug) is perhaps http://lists.x.org/archives/xorg-devel/2011-June/023218.html

you're right, not -intel specific as I was able to reproduce it with the discrete nouveau too on the same machine :)

The same happens when exit fullscreen mode in default image viewer. Intel Ivy Bridge built-in video.
