Default Re: Desktop freeze with 270.x drivers, KDE 4 and Compiz

Is there an official bug tracker where this bug can be reported? Does nvidia know about this issue?

Yes, they read the forum, believe me. Just attach your generated bugreports here (better with a higher verbosity level).

When will this bug be fixed or are there any temporary workarounds? I would like to use gnome 3 at full speed.

The workaround at the moment is to downgrade nvidia to 260.19.44 and Xorg to 1.9.4.

Confirmed here;
X.Org X Server 1.10.1
Linux 2.6.38.4 x86_64 Gentoo

I've also applied the queue size patch that I found somewhere in this forum; this seems to have improved but not solved as it still happens. The symptoms are the same and yes, it appears only with 270.x drivers.
Bug report attached

This issue is happening to me, but the freeze happens when I try maximize (and sometimes resizing) the konsole (default terminal emulator of KDE) window. This issue only happens with composite turned on.
Geforce 330m
KDE 4.6.2
Nvidia 270.41.06
Kernel 2.6.38.4
Xorg-server 1.10.1

I made a small presentation of the bug we are struggling with - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ov7pGtys7H8

NOTE: It only happens with compiz and KDE with desktop effects enabled.

I need to correct you, it happens with kwin, compiz and mutter.
With KDE you can prevent this bug by unchecking Enable Direct Rendering under Desktop effects, although you will lose some eyecandy (blur for example).

I think this is a different problem, although many say it is nvidia problem.

Yeah, forgot to mention that I had the same issue with GNOME3.

This bug also affects many Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty) users with GeForce 7 series:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...rs/+bug/728745

It would be great to see this issue fixed.
