Thanks Ben indeed. However, I was almost disappointed not to see my compiz crash when launching the test app. Is there something specific to do to make it crash? It doesn't crash on startup, nor on exit here with 1:0.9.4git20110322-0ubuntu6+r2723+201

Can you confirm it crashes with this revision, or alternatively, detail the version you're using and which the test case "works" with? Thanks

I can reproduce this in my machine.

Good news. Thanks for the quick feedback, And just in case, we'll keep the test case for regression testing.
