Thanks in advance

Setting to confirmed because of the duplicates and because the package they're using is up to date. I'm going to report the bug to upstream now.

This got fixed by Travis (thanks!) and the fix is in my bzr repository.

"my bzr repository" -> the compiz packagers repository of course.

Anyway, I uploaded it now and it waits approval because we are in the freeze. I also uploaded it to the 0.7.4 PPA

Thank you Travis and Michael! Here's to hoping this makes Hardy final.
