Description Johannes Battenberg 2011-05-13 19:56:41 UTC
Mutter incorrectly draws the drop shadow behind the windows itself. For transparent terminals and the like this means looking through the terminal right on the shadow, therefore transparency does not work as intended.
This is already solved in the git repository.
I took the patches from and incorporated them into the ebuild.
This should fix the issue until 3.0.2 is released.

Reproducible: Always
