Comment 136 for bug 259385

Beautiful work Glennric!

I'd given up hope for a fix after the recent Jaunty discussion. Your
solution works beautifully -- compiz runs perhaps more smoothly / quickly
than before, to answer Daniël's question. (But it's been four months since
compiz ran on this machine so I can't be sure.)

The obvious question perhaps:
Given that the fix is so simple -- a single line in xorg.conf -- what are
the odds of reinstating it for Jaunty?
