I tried to turn on composite manager on my XFCE desktop with EXA rendering on X11. It result to wrong rendering (or displaying) background images on some pages with complicated backgrounds and css.

My OS is Archlinux, all packages up-to-dated.
Here is my hw report, if is it useful for you:

  Kernel     : 2.6.25-ARCH
  CPU & Cache: Processor 0: AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2000+ 1687MHz, 256 KB Cache

  Sound(m)   : SB Live! EMU10k1 module: snd-emu10k1_audigy 
  Video      : RV280 [Radeon 9200 SE] server: Xorg (fglrx)  
  Driver     : xf86-video-ati   module: fglrx 
  Monitor    : Generic Monitor  H: 28.0-96.0kHz V: 50.0-75.0Hz
  Mouse      : PS/2 Mouse xtype: PS2 device: /dev/psaux
  HDD        : VT82C586A/B/VT82C686/A/B/VT823x/A/C PIPC Bus Master IDE module: pata_via 
  USB        : USB 2.0 module: ehci_hcd 

  Ethernet   : RTL8139/8139C/8139C+ module: 8139too 
  Network    : No wireless card

Note: if i switched xorg to use XAA renderind, composite is fine. This is only happens if i using EXA rendering methode.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup xorg.conf to use EXA rendering
2. turn on XFWM compositor
3. run firefox and go to some page, ie archlinux.org and scroll down and up
Actual Results:  
the menu bar will be crashed, moved down or so..

Expected Results:  
background should be right so as have to be
