Upstream has fixed this in git but until 3.8.4 comes out it would be good to get this patched in.

I only had to apply the mutter patch for OpenGL redirection to be fixed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install mutter 3.8.3
2. Run full screen OpenGL game such as Heroes of Newerth
3. See performance is shit, especially after switching to the desktop and back to the game.
