I've observed that when some popups and most notably the kickoff menu

like a landslide, the background under the menu also slides and makes
a very distracting effect. It is also very non-smooth.
Does anybody know whether there is a bug report about it, or any more
information so that I can try to fix it? (I don't want to start from
scratch.) Could it be a graphics driver bug? What I don't really
understand that how can desktop effect be much slower with KDE than
with gnome on the exact same hardware? Can somebody point me to the
right direction to figure this out?

I've been noticing this on a few different PC's too. On my own PC I turned
the effect off by System Settings -> Desktop -> All Effects -> Turn off
"Sliding popups" and stopped bothering about it not working properly
(haven't got around on reporting it either).
I have seen this at least in F12 (nVidia 9800 GT and a FX 5200 / proprietary
nvidia drivers), F13 (nVidia 9800 GT / proprietary drivers), F12 with some
sort of onboard ATI card and the Mesa experimental drivers.
With kind regards,
