    In fact it is, as soon as you add --depth 32 -bg rgba:rrrr/gggg/bbbb/aaaa

    however, this requires, afair, a composited environment (as you get with xcompmgr or by using compiz.) Transset should not be needed.

    Please look at

    or

    http://www.fuchsnet.ch/stack/uxvt.png

    which clearly demonstrates it.
    I did not use transset or any other tricks.

    The problem occurs with InitialPixmapPlacement=2 only indeed.
    please make sure to inform nvidia about that by sending a nvidia-bug-report.log (created with nvidia-bug-report.sh) and a how to reproduce description to either the linux-bugs@nvidia.com address or post it on nvnews.net.

    So nvidia engineers can try to fix it.

      Ah, indeed. Thanks a lot for the tip, it's much more convenient than using transset.

          Update on my rxvt-unicode with fake transparency performance issue: I recompiled it with only the features I wanted, which does NOT include Xft/freetype. Now it's as fast with InitialPixmapPlacement=2 as with InitialPixmapPlacement=1. Not sure what caused the issue.
