glxgears can't be hidden when Desktop Effects are enabled

Description of problem:
When glxgears is run with Desktop Effects enabled then the gears are shown even when they should be hidden by other windows.
Without Desktop Effects then glxgears seems to work correctly.
So it seems to be an issue with compiz, but it could also be the X server or GL or ...

Yes, please, upgrade to the latest version of Rawhide and reattach /var/log/Xorg.*.log and /etc/X11/xorg.conf (if you have any). I think ~/.xsession-errors might be interesting as well.

At one point it worked correctly, and the gears followed its wobling window while spinning. But I don't know what caused it and I wasn't able to reproduce it.

airlied: I think there is a generic bug for that.
kiilerix1: but that should only be a display bug - not causing instability?
airlied: yup shouldnt cause any problems just looks crappy.
airlied: compiz + modesetting is going to be slow for a month or two.
I think the generic DRI2 bug for "redirected direct rendering" is Bug 222262 - the output I see is like the DON'T on http://hoegsberg.blogspot.com/2007/08/redirected-direct-rendering.html
