Bug#612609: upgrade to 7.10-3 disables composite effects
I upgraded my KDE to the experimental 4.6.0 version just to find out that
composite effects were not working anymore. So I downgraded the changes just to
figure out they were still not working. Further investigation showed that the
upgrade to libgl1-mesa-dri caused the problem. Downgrading this one package to
7.7.1-4 fixed the problem immediately.
With 7.10-3 glxgears shows just a black screen while 7.7.1-4 shows the gears as
it is supposed to do.
I'm not sure about the severity because this bug complely broke my
desktop environment leaving me with just a blank screen.
