Re: Temporary X freezes when repainting under Compiz 0.8.6
Well that was interesting.
I just had a GIMP window of a (large) photo turn completely black, with only the marker in the rulers, the status bar, and the layer outline painting.
If I tried to scroll, I got the familiar accurséd X freeze, and only the new region of the image rendered; the rest stayed black.
Resizing the window below some threshold fixed both problems. Resizing it bigger again caused both to reappear, but only sometimes. Each "bad" resize was accompanied by the familiar flicker.
Screenshot attached, though it doesn't seem too helpful. The window I used to crop the screenshot had the same problem.
