	Yes. Nvidia drivers are really buggy. When I use the open
source 'nv' driver, everything works fine, but sloooooow when
compositor is enabled. Hence, I am searching for a stable solution
performing several combination between compositors, nvidia drivers and
x extensions.

	I know that all stuff related to this extension is a problem, X
server, card drivers and compositors are working on a unstable
environtment, but since there are a combination that works (xcompmgr
and nvidia drivers) I thought that there is a working solution. That is
the reason I send the e-mail.

	I will continue to work without compositor extension (I really
did not find the usefulness of transparency).
