Hello,  there is the problem with latest nvidia drivers.

Involved programs:  gnome with mutter (composite enabled) and 

while logged in to gnome session I was trying to execute ooffice and the 
system got stuck for 5-10 seconds. There are artifacts and color 
distortions in ooffice interface and it is totally unusable. To get back 
to normal mode I switch to text console (ctr-alt-Fx)  and kill 
soffice.bin process.

In the same time I've in  the Xorg.log:
(WW) May 15 02:31:17 NVIDIA(0): The NVIDIA X driver has encountered too 
many errors.  Falling
(WW) May 15 02:31:17 NVIDIA(0):     back to legacy PCI mode.

After downgrading nvidia drivers to previous version (190.53-4) all 
works fine.

I also use cairo-dock in OpenGL mode and it works fine with both 
versions (old and new).

xorg.conf contains (info only for two sections - device and screen)

Section "Device"
     Identifier     "Device0"
     Driver         "nvidia"
