Using Compiz and nvidia graphics, an annoying issue happens very often : some
parts of the screen are not refreshed correctly.
For instance, I switch to another tab in firefox, but the page is not updated.
I have to move the mouse or the window to get it updated.
The same happens with all applications : the tabs in CCSM, content in the
nautilus browser, etc.

I found that many Ubuntu users encountered the same issue :

I use the nvidia proprietary driver provided in the nvidia repo : 177.82.
I tested the latest driver from nvidia, 180.22, and the issue is actually much
worse. The desktop becomes absolutely unusable.

A workaround is too disable the '--loose-bindings' option from the
compiz-manager, but it slightly hits the performance.

Thank you in advance for your help,

Best regards,
