Screen record: with xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.99.917-19.20151206, compiz-0.8.12 crash when resizing window quickly
Description of problem:
I upgrade xorg-x11-drv-intel package to 2.99.917-19.20151206.fc23 recently, now when resizing window quickly (either drag the bottom-right corner of window, or press ALT + MouseButton2), window manager switched to marco automatically, and compiz process is gone.
Downgraded xorg-x11-drv-intel to 2.99.917-16.20150729.fc23 will fix this issue.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. login to MATE desktop
2. start compiz window manager if you're using other window manager
3. open mate-terminal or leafpad application, then keep resizing them
window manager switched to marco (which means compiz crashed, compiz process will be gone)
don't crash compiz
I can reproduce this issue on my laptop and home PC.
CPU & graphic controller:
- Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3317U CPU @ 1.70GHz

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 4th Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
I can also reproduce this on a number of machines using the native Intel driver.

If running Compiz manually (to capture the output), compiz reports as follows when crashing.
failed to create drawable
compiz (core) - Warn: glXCreatePixmap failed
Launching fallback window manager
Confirm revert to 2.99.917-16.20150729.fc23 stops the problem.
Just to add that using xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.99.917-23.intel20154.x86_64 which is the latest from the Intel 01 website also has the problem, so the only known working version at the moment is 2.99.917-16.20150729.fc23.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
