[1] You can't send attachments to the list; they will be automatically
removed, as I understand it.

[2] I have seen the phenomenon you describe. I got it when you connect
via VNC to a machine running a desktop with 3D compositing enabled.
(Note, some desktops *always* use compositing -- e.g. Unity, GNOME 3,

If you are running a desktop where it is optional (e.g. KDE, Maté,
Xfce) then disable compositing.
