LibreOffice Transparent Slide Show Problem

After upgrading to the latest XOrg updates, i got some problem when using LibreOffice Impress. It won't start the slide show. More precisely, it displays a transparent slide show, so you see the main application on your screen instead of your presentation showed in full screen

After searching for some bug reports, it seems that the new cairo is probably the culprit. Until the problem has been fixed, you can fix it by using this simple step:
Tools->options->LibreOffice->view, uncheck "Use hardware acceleration"
It worked on my machine. Does it work on yours?
