Bug Description

Binary package hint: compiz

There is a bug in the new Compiz version in Ubuntu 11.04 version (in GNOME classic mode) with the window previews in DockbarX. When I enable the KDE Compatibility Compiz plugin and enable the window previews in DockbarX the preview appears behind the popup which is a problem. Here is a screenshot of the issue: http://goo.gl/ha234
This used to work perfectly in older versions of Compiz and Ubuntu. It's probably a bug caused by the C++ rewrite of Compiz.
I have notified the developer of DockbarX about this but he said that it is a bug with Compiz and the only way to fix it is to contact the Compiz developers.

Is this going to be fixed? I've been using the GNOME Classic mode in Ubuntu 11.4 and getting DockbarX to work with window previews with the new Compiz isn't working. I had to downgrade Compiz with this patch: http://www.webupd8.org/2011/05/how-to-downgrade-to-compiz-086-in.html
This is nonsense!
