Package: libmutter0
Version: 3.4.1-5
Severity: important
Tags: upstream

Intel 865G (and below) hardware has no support for full
gnome-shell/clutter/cogl (whatever's responsible) used to handle things
correctly just using GL_ARB_texture_rectangle

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a Intel 865G GPU
2. Try to use gnome-shell in Debian Wheezy


1. Be using Debian Wheezy
2. gnome-shell --cogl-debug=disable-npot-textures --replace

Actual results:
Windows don't have their contents. Gnome-shell is unusable.

Expected results:
Windows show their contents.

Relevent information:

This could be fixed by patches in version 3.4.1, so that users who have Intel
pre-915 GPU can enjoy the experience of gnome-shell in Gnome 3.
