Compositing in xfwm doesn't cope very well with GL and overlay windows
(it doesn't use opengl rendering). So you have to tweak your install to
find the correct config, which match your hardware and xorg
configuration (and driver).

If you turn off this option, is there other problems? (I mean, why
wouldn't you turn it off permanently and live with that?)
