One of the upstream developers just had the same crash and figured out the fix, we'll get it once he commits it.

This bug was fixed in the package compiz - 1:0.8.3+git20091005-0ubuntu5

compiz (1:0.8.3+git20091005-0ubuntu5) karmic; urgency=low

  * New snapshot from upstream stable git:
     - compiz.real crashed with SIGSEGV in blurDrawWindow()
       (LP: #353236)
     - Windows disappear if resolution is changed to something smaller
       than window size (LP: #414134)
     - compiz.real crashed with SIGSEGV in handleEvent() (LP: #430518)
     - Windows that span screen width or height cannot be resized
       in that dimension (LP: #137134)
     - Reducing number of workspaces leaves windows inaccessible
       (LP: #189259)
     - "Snap Inverted" in Wobbly Windows compiz plugin broken
       (LP: #366822)
     - Problem when resizing and the Panels
       (LP: #408030)
  * debian/control:
    - make compiz package depend on compiz-gnome | compiz-kde (LP: #172385)
  * debian/patches/015_draw_dock_shadows_on_desktop.patch:
    - fix clock/calendar shadow not going away (LP: #428783)
      thanks to Erkin Bahceci
  * debian/patches/029_default_options:
    - add a focus prevention match to allow polkit windows to steal focus
      otherwise they never get focus (LP: #436852)
  * debian/compiz-gnome.gconf-defaults:
    - change /apps/gwd/blur_type to all since it only does anything if blur
      is enabled and is usually what is wanted (LP: #158376)
    - turn constrain_y back on (LP: #82654)
  * debian/rules:
    - add commands plugin to default active_plugins (LP: #355018)

In my case, compiz crashed when I was switching between programs using Alt-Tab.

This was fixed in the switcher plugin but staticswitcher has the same bug (and we haven't uploaded the fix for it yet). Expect that to happen today.

Was this supposed to be fixed already? I just got a crash apparently in, see Bug #446696
