I fixed this problem (by stumbling around).

Since I have other, older distributions working with Compiz, I opened ccsm from one of them and compared them to the 12.04 upgrade ccsm.

Strangely, after enabling Windows decorations, move, and re·size the problems stated is this question were solved.

By setting others from the older ccsm, I got a rotating cube.

Alas, there are no more 3D windows

Attached are screenshots of ccsm for 10.10 distribution

Changed in update-manager (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

This may not be due to update-manager, since it sets Unity as default, and Unity has been reported as not playing nice with Gnome Classic/fallback CCSM settings,

This system has been abandoned.
