If you are done testing Mir, in addition to commenting out the 
unity-system-compositor startup as previously discussed in this list, 
you can also get rid of the unity-system-compositor.log display.

In directory /etc/xdg/autostart, move the mir-log.desktop file somewhere 
else.  Don't delete it in case you change your mind.

Then, logout and re-login.  The display should be gone.
