Bug Description

Windows that support translucency under a compositing window manager, e.g. gnome-terminal, are not translucent.

Setting the gnome-terminal translucency to values < 1.0 (in Edit->Profile Preferences), just results in a darker purple color (see attachment). The window contents seem to get blended with a black background instead of the actual background.

I pushed a fix to lp:~linaro-graphics-wg/compiz-core/linaro-gles2/ at rev. 2915 . This fixes the translucency issue for me on both the panda and the desktop. Hopefully it doesn't have any side-effects.
