can't enable KDE4 desktop effects with ~8 or more windows open
Hi nvidia team, I'm getting this weird issues where the nvidia driver will simply freeze if I try to enable desktop effects after using my desktop _without_ effects for a while.
Basically, after you have about 10 windows open, you try to enable desktop effects... it will freeze for a while until KDE4 gives up and says that the system will run too slow and the system is restored to it's previous state.
I attached two bug reports: *-0* was retrieved through ssh without desktop effects on, the system running normally. *-1* was retrieved through ssh while the system was frozen. The curious part about the -1 bug report script is that it was frozen until exactly after KDE4 disabled desktop effects.
With older Xorg packages (xserver 1.4/ xorg 7.3), this desktop effects freeze didn't occur but everything ran slower if anything related to OpenGL was used if Compositing was enabled. After opening several windows, moving a transparent window across the desktop dropped to about 5 FPS and it was just unusable.
Even though it's in the bug report, my graphics card: 8400m gs 128mb
