Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 962741
Panel hide/unhide time can not be lowered under 3 seconds when Compiz-Fusion is running

gconf panels configurations, xorg drivers, compiz configuration
Description of problem:
Upon initiating Compiz-Fusion, panels hide/unhide delay(s) becomes 3 seconds, despite they are set to 100ms in gconf. Happens with and without gconf-backend. Bigger hide/unhide values are recognized, but the lowest real effect is 3 seconds. When the Windows manager is set to to Metacity the panel behavior returns to normal. The bug is present in SL6.3 and CentOS6.4, all kernels (incl 3.9-ml). The same behavior is observed when Fedora14 packages were installed in the place of el6. Happens with and without the discrete graphics turned off.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm -qa | grep compiz
Every time compiz-fusion is started
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Compiz-Fusion
2. Initiate Compiz-Fusion
The lowest hide/unhide time becomes 3 seconds despite gconf

This computer was running compiz-fusion on Fedora 14 (with kmod-nvidia) without any problems before I installed CentOS 6.4 on it.
I've found someone else having exactly the same bug on centos6:
Can more people please test, so proper priority and severity can be assigned?
I haven't booted my SL6 install for several months a don't think I will have the time to investigate this issue.

Can you please give some random hints on where to look at to try to resolve it myself or to direct someone to look at it?
So far I've tried installing f14 rpms, which worked on sl6, but did not solve the issue. I've also downgraded Xorg with no success. Needless to say, I tried enabling and disabling every plugin in csm and changing their settings. Played with gconf-backend to no success too. I'm on it from months.
To bump the bug up. Centos 6 will be supported for 7 more years. I think it's worth fixing.
Still present in CentOS 6.5 (final). Will try to repack fedora 13 compiz-fusion packages and see if they have the bug.
Any luck with F-13? It's still in CentOS-6.6. It's still annoying.
