cube workspace shows previous workspace for about a frame

compiz-plugins-extra (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

most likely, just compiz-plugins-extra (currently needs to be updated/synced/recompiled with the compiz-core 0.96 sources.
If I switch workspace in cube, it shows when finished that switch the new workspace, then shortly, but clearly visible the previous workspace, then the correct workspace. That looks like flickering, for a felt one frame seeing previous one.
Most likely a slightly incompatibility between compiz-core 0.9.6 and compiz-plugins-extra 0.9.5. So first Update, then have a look.

For completness:
$ lsb_release -rd

attached the exported settings from ccsm.
May need to replace the bg image from wallpaper.

But still most likely, an update 0.9.6 should be done first.
