Yes. This also fixes the issue. Another "issue" appears though when doing this:
fullscreen animations are not smooth anymore; there's frameskipping at every
exact interval (about one second.) This is not video related though. With
compositing active, all animations, including glxgears running in a very small
window, exhibit this frameskipping.  The only way to get really even and smooth
animations is to run in fullscreen (which suspends compositing by default on

So I guess the issue is triggered when KDE unredirects the rendering. But it's
strange that it happens only with Flash and not other applications (KDE
unredirects them too).

Just tried the patch. Doesn't help.
