Bug Description

I'm testing the new compiz-testing- :
with this new bits, I lost the reaction of the windows control buttons .
I think it is related to the Fact that unity can't run with this Compiz. ( I will file a bug against that too)

Same issue as in picture. Buttons corrupt, no unity-window-decorator, no unity, all of it. Using an ATI Radeon Xpress 1150

unity will run 'fine', the main issue is that on the 1st login after upgrading the unity plugin is disabled
If you go into ccsm you can enable it, probably need to unset all the plugins and then re-enable as needed.

After that though, at least here, the close, min, max buttons are on the right side and do nothing -

no, I have tried run unity

you can run cmd via nautilus and so on

I think it is not the best way to have this on productive machine :D, but I love news as they come

you can run metacity via cmd

Situation for me:

First run, as the first image, unresponding buttons on a strange metacity border, no unity.

I managed to open cssm and switch unity and similar stuff on, so now the system is QUITE ok.

Remaining problems:

As for the first image the buttons are way too high and the lower part is deformed.
I lost my metacity title bar, just for NAUTILUS objects, so now I can't move windows, or close them or similar stuff.
I have the metacity orange bar (as first picture) for other apps, but I can't move or close them either.
The border of the windows are strangely too big.
My compiz shortcuts are resetted to default values.

The problem is still present. After the first run the application, if it is "Maximum size" then the window decorations and buttons (close, minimize, maximized) do not react. After the collapse of one application for the window at one session of the application problem does not appear. if the application, then close again to open the problem persists. Ubuntu 13.04 compiz with the latest updates.
