I see the same bug, but only when metacity is my wm. With compiz it doens't crash, but it only takes a frame every 3 seconds.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I also still see this same issue. At time of this posting my Fedora 12 x86_64 desktop was fully updated running compiz. This performance happens regardless of entire desktop, windowid or area selection.
I cannot reproduce this with metacity on F12 x86_64. Can you please provide a backtrace and report it upstream?
1) debuginfo-install recordmydesktop
2) gdb recordmydesktop
3) run --no-sound --dummy-cursor black -o test
4) enter: bt
Just wanted to note that with the latest in Fedora 12 x86_64 the performance issues have ceased for the video side of things and I have not seen any segfaults in months. I am seeing issues with recordings when you attempt to record sound which Ive submitted as a different issue. Hopefully thats not the incorrect path to take.
