They are a pain. I only use inline signatures because clients like

I have a laptop with a Nvidia GeForce Go chipset. The compositing stuff
worked fine except that at apparently random points (every 20 minutes or
so) the machine would freeze for a few seconds - unresponsive, gkrellm
not updating etc. Then it would come back and carry on until the next
time. When I disabled compositing I found this issue went away.
I will probably have another go when Hardy is released.
