I'm running Ubuntu 17.10 with XOrg (Wayland was impossibly laggy).

Every few seconds the window manager will stop updating. Just the mouse
keeps on moving, but videos playing will continue.

If I wait a half a minute, it will resume. If I switch to ctrl+alt+f1
and log again, it resumes too.

In the log I see:

Feb  2 14:08:17 fc993847 org.gnome.Shell.desktop[17388]: Window manager 
warning: last_user_time (332294169) is greater than comparison timestamp 
(332288825).  This most likely represents a buggy client sending inaccurate 
timestamps in messages such as _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW.  Trying to work around...

The name of the offending window varies with whatever I'm focused at the time, 
doesn't matter what it is.

  Binary package hint: metacity

  
  running compiz --replace as trying to debug an issue with lucid Beta 2 and I 
get the following output -

  Window manager warning: last_user_time (1271002643) is greater than 
comparison timestamp (799652). This most likely represents a buggy client 
sending inaccurate timestamps in messages such as _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW. Trying to 
work around...
  Window manager warning: 0x4600028 (Social bro) appears to be one of the 
offending windows with a timestamp of 1271002643. Working around...
  Window manager warning: Received a _NET_WM_MOVERESIZE message for 0x4600028 
(Social bro); these messages lack timestamps and therefore suck.

  while the error output is helpful surely a user seeing "these messages
  lack timestamps and therefore suck." is not at all helpful and should
  have a more appropriate error message displayed
