Bug Description

Binary package hint: compiz

I've been running natty for a while. After today's update, compiz would crash when logging into the Ubuntu Classic Desktop. After discussing this with didrocks and seb128 on IRC, it was discovered that compiz did not like my settings in ~/.config/compiz-1/compizconfig. Attached is my configuration.

WORKAROUND:
1. logout
2. Login to a console
3. mv ~/.config/compiz-1 ~/.config/compiz-1.broken
4. login

Does this old, untouched bug with a patch have any relevance with this one?

Also, is this bug still active in later releases of Compiz?
