Same problem:
*****Note: under a new, test user this problem does not occur****
======================

After upgrading to 9.04 amd64 from 8.10 amd64 dual monitor not xinerama, compiz fails to run.

I 8.10 compiz had to be started by a script, to wit:
 compiz --display :0.0 --only-current-screen --replace &
 compiz --display :0.1 --only-current-screen --replace &

After upgrading and installing glib2.0 patch (https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/346964)
and reloading compiz, it failed to start.

As a test, I created a new user to test compiz⋯where it worked.

I ran this in the terminal:
 compiz --display :0.1 --only-current-

screen --replace emerald &

And it crashed the window manager on display :0.0 (results below)

I started Compiz Fusion Icon, and used it to attaemp to start compiz, and it crashed the window manager.

How can I get Compiz to function properly?

terminal result from compiz attempt:

~$ compiz --display :0.1 --only-current-screen --replace emerald &

Not sure it showed in the info included with bug #438130, but I got this bug using nvidia-graphics-drivers-185 (not 180)

nvidia-graphics-drivers-180 is, confusingly enough, the source package for the 185 driver.

Ok, being the impatient type, I downloaded nvidia-graphics-drivers-190 and from Michael Marley's ppa and rebooted. No problems with mutter, so I opened aterminal window, typed "compiz --replace" and was rudely thron back to metacity with the error message "No whitelisted drivers found". Then, in a spark of inspiration / fit of extreme annoyance, I modified /usr/bin/compiz line 304 to return 0 instead of 1, and, again, in my open terminal window, typed "compiz --replace" It seems to be working. Did I just get lucky?
