1. The Force Quit dialog never shown, because incompatible with zenity 3.

- Steps to reproduce: run an application that hangs (e.g. ), and try to close it with the close button of the window.

- Upstream report:

2. Drag and drop element, menu and tooltip shadows causes visual glitches when compositing enabled.

- Steps to reproduce: enable compositing in metacity settings, and drag something.

- Upstream report:

This task depends upon
