Description Dan Winship 2010-04-07 23:50:01 UTC
Sometimes when a window is mapped (and the machine is slow), the drop shadow appears noticeably before the rest of the window.
Comment 1 Owen Taylor 2010-04-13 13:02:48 UTC
I think what is actually happening is that the X server fills in the default contents of the window by copying from the backing store, and then we draw that with the drop shadow, and then later the contents fill in. So this is a duplicate of bug 587255, which is about providing a mechanism for letting the window manager know when the window has been initially filled in.
