Default pivot + xcompmgr + fullscreen doesn't render well

Hi!
I'm using 8174 drivers with 6200 card. When in pivot mode (xrandr -o right), with xcompmgr (or kompmgr) all fullscreen programs (opera, screensaver, gqview...) are badly rendered. It's always reproducible though I don't know whether it's nvidia's problem...
Tried to turn off dbe, glx, damage, RenderAccel but the problem lasts.
Thank you for your reply.

This reproduces without Composite and without RenderAccel ? If so, please post a bug report. RenderAccel and Composite extension bug fixes are planned for a future driver release.

Also, please verify whether this problem exists with the 'nv' driver.

Thanks,
Lonni

Without Composite you cannot run xcompmgr (obviously), so this issue doesn't reproduce.
I can't get nv driver working (no devices found), so I cannot test it.

Here's the bug report. Also kompmgr writes following errors:
Code:
...
error 3 request 20 minor 0 serial 27868
error 3 request 20 minor 0 serial 27869
error 3 request 20 minor 0 serial 27870
error 3 request 20 minor 0 serial 27871
error 3 request 20 minor 0 serial 27872
error 3 request 15 minor 0 serial 27873
...
However I don't know, whether this is related to this problem. xcompmgr doesn't write anything.

ony11,
This is a known bug that will be fixed in the next driver release. I run this configuration at home. The kompmgr errors are caused by an unavoidable race condition between its compositing operations and window mapping/unmapping, and are harmless.
