Public bug reported:

Affects: metacity (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

When switching between workspaces, the desktop occasionally freezes for
a second or 2, leaving everything in a half-drawn state (window outlines
are drawn, but the contents are grey).

While frozen, the mouse is still responsive (I think, its tricky to test

After a small delay, everything returns to normal and the windows finish
drawing themselves.

This is running Dapper.  I can't reproduce this in Breezy.
