Description of problem:
The change in xorg-x11-server-1.7.7-4.el6 has caused a regression with compiz
on my ATI RV280 (Radeon 9200). After login, the gnome panels are not fully drawn, the menus and icons appear only after the mouse pointer hits them. Downgrading xorg-x11-server-* to 1.7.7-3.el6 fixes it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. enable compiz using deskop-effects
2. re-login into Gnome
Not seeing most of the icons, menus, applets in the gnome panel. They do appear after an event causes them to redraw (such as hovering a mouse over an icon, or clicking where a menu is supposed to be). Sometimes even the background area of the panel is filled with what seems like random memory contents.
The panels and their elements should be fully painted after login.

Reporter, could you upgrade, please? I have here
1.7.7-5 won't affect this. There was only one change between -3 and -4, and the change in -5 is unrelated.
Correct. I upgraded to 1.7.7-5 and the bug is still there.
xorg-x11-server-Xorg 1.7.7-8 should be in brewroot, can you please test with this, the patch to fix another bug was applied in slightly the wrong place.
I'm running 1.7.7-8 and I still seem to have problems.

Ben, does 1.7.7-3 show this issue? I want to be sure that you're seeing the same thing Michal is seeing.
For me 1.7.7-8 fixes the bug.
I'm still seeing this problem with 1.7.7-11.el6.
A reliable reproducer for it is to just run emacs. The toolbar is not painted until you mouse-over it.
Tim can you attach and X org log + if you are running a compositor (which one.)
Okay I've built xorg-x11-server-1.7.7-12 in brew.
Can you please test this and get back to me.
Fixed in 1.7.7-12. Thanks!
I'm using compiz, FWIW.
