FAQ
Tearing while a desktop change animation is running can occur when moving a window or switching Spaces. This ocurrs because most applications don't use an accelerated drawing path to the graphics card so the drawing of Change Desktop is not properly synchronized with other applications. This is a limitation of Mac OS X, not Change Desktop.
Due to a bug in 10.5.x, the Leopard translucent menu bar will not update properly when Change Desktop is running.
Due to a bug in 10.5.x, the Page Curl transition may appear "broken" on large displays (1600×1200+)
