Totem crashes when exiting fullscreen mode and Compiz's Wobbly Windows is turned on

Bug Description

Binary package hint: totem

When watching a DVD in Fullscreen mode with Compiz's Wobbly Windows turned on, the DVD didn't render itself to 16:9 correctly, and Totem crashed as soon as I exited Fullscreen mode. The work around is to turn off Wobbly Windows. I'm using the version of Totem that came with Ubuntu 9.10 and I am using the NVIDIA 185 driver.

Attached is the gdb output. Surprisingly, I couldn't replicate the issue with totem-dbg. Totem works fine in fullscreen and 16:9 with Wobbly Windows turned on now.Maybe it just needed to be re-installed after Compiz? I can't figure it out. The issue was also chronicled here -

Bug report would have expired but set to "In Progress"
without any explanation so closing now as "Invalid".
