Hello, Linux community!
Ubuntu 10.04, Gnome, Compiz with 4 virtual desktops.
I have Thunderbird installed from the binary repository. When I send messages, the screen hangs, I cannot click anything - it does not respond.
If I switch to another virtual desktop with a shortcut (Alt+Ctrl+Right arrow) and release the keys - everything gets back to normal. I can switch back and Thunderbird works ok. If I switch to another screen and then I switch back without releasing Ctrl+Alt, the system hangs completely. Nothing helps, I even can't switch desktops anymore. The only option I know is to reboot.
Did anyone have that kind of a problem? Where should I look? Should I report a but to Thunderbird or Compiz? All updates are installed

ugh. Don't replace it. reconfigure it.
sudo dpkg-reconfigure compiz && sudo dpkg-reconfigure thunderbird

This sounds like a compiz problem to me. You can try replacing compiz ( stopping it ) with another window manager. I suspect the problem will be gone.
Your problem may be 4 desktops. If you are running the cube, you should have only 1. It will have four sides.
