It happens both with and without compositing (actually issues are much more
visible without compositing, possibly due to the fact that various
compositing effects trigger more screen redraws). Btw, unetbootin: which
file open dialog do you get, the gnome or the kde one?
qt one, but only because I use "sudo unetbootin".
