I keep thinking I made a mistake when the failures go away. Then a day or two later, they happen again with fresh branches from lp:compiz.

Looks like the cause is:
383: (process:32126): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: Settings schema 'org.compiz' is not installed

I think we have a problem if the unit tests are relying on the host system to have this installed.

rm -rf build
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ... again

It usually starts working again on the second try. :P
