The activation of Desktop effect (Fedora8 Gnome: System>Preferences>Appearance>Desktop effects), even with no special effect selected, causes a problem of display, essentialy in full screen.
Give me a mail, I will send you an address to download a screen print with vlc and totem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
compiz 0.6.2-3-i386, compiz-fusion 0.6.0-5-i386
Steps to Reproduce:
1. activate Desktop effect
2. launch a movie with totem of vlc (at least)
3. switch to full screen display
There is just a part of the screen on which the movie is diplayed. The rest is black or strange!
Everything works fine with no Desktop effect.
