ccsm profile handling bug
In Oneiric (11.10) compiz (yes the 0.9.6 with 0.9.5 ccsm (last version)) has a bug with both gnome-shell and unityshell . It might be only a ccsm bug but I'm not too sure so I haven't listed it as one .
Here's the overall situation : ccsm with gconf backend cannot correctly handle profiles . For example if you add or import a profile - it shows up in the .gconf/.../profiles directory but it doesn't activate correctly and makes all sorts of bugs on restart etc.
Next thing is that when a profile is added it doesn't appear in the profiles list correctly (under any circumstances (for ex. change to flat backend , gnome shell,unity...) ) . Some profile (or 2) appear/s with a name of non-valid characters , and I'm pretty sure that's not the added/imported one . This invalid thing doesn't get erased and changes its random name from time to time .
That's what I can think of for now (I tinkered the configuration files a lot but concluded only that they behave strange ) .
edit : Just did a complete removal of compiz and unity (got into some fiasko with getting back in ubuntu and had to install gdm) and got back into the configuration compiz ,unity (this time over gdm) and without touching anything ccsm showed the same on profiles : Default and " *(#$ " (but with some freakier characters) .
