Thanks Olivier.
I have disabled compositing and the slow redrawing is much better. But i can
only compare with openbox, which is not fare. Both draws better.

Well, nice to ear that.
I have not seen any of both code, but agree that sometimes is impossible to
work with code from others.
Can i ask what about the code you dont like?
Is the implementation, something about the sintax or the project goals?

That is what i want to know. I would like to see an experienced developer to
say metacity is going in the wrong way by X causes.
