This is a known bug that has to do with the nvidia driver.  I'm assuming you
have an nvidia card?  Use the restricted modules manager to enable the
restricted nvidia driver.  Reboot.  If that doesn't immediately fix it, then
add the following to the 'Screen' section of your xorg.conf

Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "true"
