The expo plugin upstream is unchanged since 22 August. That's the version that went into 0.9.8.0.

What has changed (I think) is the re-introduction of ubuntu distro patches to expo.

Additional info - Clicking on workspace switcher icon and using Shortcut Super + S causes the crash.

Shortcut to switch between workspaces (Ctrl+Alt + Arrow Keys) and shortcut to move focused window between workspaces (Shift+Ctrl+Alt + Arrow Keys) works fine and does not cause the compiz to crash.

Here I also have a screen edge mouse binding active (bottom left corner) and this also triggers the crash, so no matter how you call expo - the crash gets triggered in any case...

Changed in compiz (Ubuntu Quantal):
status: Triaged → In Progress
