Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 209305
Graphics corruption after suspend with desktop effects enabled
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:35 EDT
On my IBM t42p laptop, after I suspend and resume, there is fairly annoying
graphics corruption that occurs.
All of the title bars are corrupted, but seem to be fixed when they are clicked.
The gnome panel dropshadows seem corrupted, and any shadows that occur are
Switching to a different VT, then back to X does not resolve the issue.
Did you start up the browser in the screen shot after coming back from suspend?
What happens if you kill and restart gnome-window-decorator?
Yes, the browser was opened after I resumed. Had it been open before, the
titlebar would have been corrupted (until I clicked on it).
Killing and restarting gnome-window-decorator resolves all of the issues.
Since this bugzilla report was filed, there have been several major updates,

If you won't be able to reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as
INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
Well, suspend isn't working at all on my machine at the moment, so I can't
really test this yet.
I am sorry, that means unfortunately that we cannot proceed with this bug. If
the problem reappears even when suspend/resume is available again, please reopen
this bug with additional information based on the current Rawhide. Thanks a lot
and sorry we cannot help you better.
Closing as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.
