This bug was fixed in the package compiz - 1:

compiz (1: yakkety; urgency=medium

  [ Eleni Maria Stea ]
  * Added a new option in show desktop plugin that skips the fade
    animation: useful when performance is more important than eyecandy.

  [ Marco Trevisan (Treviño) ]
  * ccsGSettingsBackend: don't try to update setting if wrapper is not
    found (LP: #1599900)
  * migration scripts: remove unsupported plugins for all the unity

FYI, I seem to be hitting this same bug (under qemu) with the xenial daily ISO as well (which have xenial-proposed enabled by default).

Will this be fixed in Xenial also?

The daily image of Yakkety doesn't work for me in any VM.

I've tried today's LiveCD image in qemu, VMware and VirtualBox none of them would get to show Unity. They end up with black screen.

I can't tell if it is because of this bug or something else. Is this really fixed.
