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.


Still Thomas.
