No changes, regression is still there(tested with compiz and gnome-shell).
My package versions:
compiz - 0.8.8
gnome-shell - 3.0.2
nvidia driver - 270.41.19
kernel image - 2.6.39
xorg server - 1.10.2
Did you test GeForce 8200? Problem is hardware dependent - I can not reproduce bug with GeForce 250GTS with the same software.
Also I see artifacts in default gnome theme. I have attached follow screenshots:
1. scroll-artifacts.jpg - artifacts in scrollbar
2. tab-artifacts.png - artifacts in gnome-terminal tabs.
