compiz flickers and freezes after update

Bug #964230 reported by Biblioclasta on 2012-03-24
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
compiz (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Compiz freezes, if I kill X fron the console and login again then the desktop flickers.
The same happens in Gnome Clasic. So I guess is not a Unity issue.
