Default Re: [270.29] desktop freeze when i maximize window

I'm getting this also. Hangs for about 4 seconds after clicking maximize. Kubuntu 11.04 64-bit (and all updates as of May 10) + nvidia 270.41.06. I use konsoles and emacs all day for work. There are a few other reports on the web, but none with replies confirming an issue.

Wait, turning off desktop effects and rebooting seems to have cured it. Also system settings -> hardware -> power management -> power profile -> disabled desktop effect -> on profile load.

Oh, I see this is a fairly common issue, reading the Arch linux board.

Multiple threads claim the event queue (EQ) is being overflowed by the gfx driver.
