Bug Description

Binary package hint: xfwm4

When resizing or moving windows, even with compositing enabled, the windows become transparent and look like wireframes rather than being transparent/opaque, regardless of where the slider is in the compositor menu.

This is the daily-live build for Natty dated 2011-04-03.

Worked with mr_pouit to debug, works with:

xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p "/general/box_resize" -t bool -s false
xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p "/general/box_move" -t bool -s false

And reassigning to xubuntu-default-settings
