http://www.winischhofer.net/snapshot0001.png (with composite, but
without xcompmgr) and
http://www.winischhofer.net/snapshot0002.png (composite disabled).
1. KDE's Menu shadows seem to consist of another windows pixmap(s)
2. Konsole background is somewhat "wrapped".
http://www.winischhofer.net/snapshot0003.png (xcompmgr). Looks good,
except for the background issue
http://www.winischhofer.net/snapshot0004.png (xcompmgr -c). Menu shadows
get "double" alpha blending treatment as it seems. I assume that is is
imminent if the shadow is done twice.
http://www.winischhofer.net/snapshot0005.png (xcompmgr -c) - result of
resizing a window. That does not happen all the time; I managed to
resize it without garbage sometimes. In the example, I simply made the
window bigger (and did this pretty fast).
4) With composite, without xcompmgr: KDE's Load feedback type "bounding
icon" is broken, too. The bouncing icon is somewhat distorted. Couldn't
make a screenshot of this though.
5) "xcompmgr -f" doesn't work so well either. Menus come up without
contents, just its shadow.
