https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=997796 suggests:

  Unfortunately, this happens with all clutter-based applications
  (caribou, cheese, gnibbles, gnome-documents, sushi, quadrapassel, totem)
  on systems that no have hardware acceleration, and use software

  Solutions, what I know:

  1. Install the appropriate DRI driver, if available.
  2. Rebuild packages without clutter, if possible.
  3. Look for alternatives.
