This seems to still be present with metacity-2.15.3-2.
Comment 4 Thomas J. Baker 2006-05-31 09:09:07 EDT
Fixed with 2.15.3-4 although the menus are a much too translucent.
Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2006-08-14 22:57:35 EDT
Closing bugs related to the metacity compositor, since we no longer develop it.
