A workaround has been published here:

Run this command in a terminal to turn the setting off, and fix the flickering:
gconftool-2 --set /apps/compiz/general/screen0/options/unredirect_fullscreen_windows --type bool 0

To switch it back on:
gconftool-2 --set /apps/compiz/general/screen0/options/unredirect_fullscreen_windows --type bool 1
