opera window not updating without compositing (kde)
Hi, under gentoo after the last update, the opera window doesn't update after a few seconds of showing itself. I have to move the cursor over an icon or anything that changes appearance to make it update. This is very frustrating when in the middle of typing a URL, the window stops updating and I'm typing "blind". While playing flash/HTML5 movies this is also quite frustrating
This is under gentoo,KDE 4.6.5, mesa 7.10.3, opera 10.50. I disable compositing because performance is dreadful (Intel graphics) on my external screen, which I use most of the time. For now I've worked around the issue by changing the compositing backend from OpenGL to XRender (where the performance is acceptable), but I'd like to disable compositing altogether.
My theory involves the XDamage extension, but I have no idea about how to work from there.
