This morning's (at least for me morning) updates resulted in new versions of compiz and xserver-xorg-video-intel packages.
compiz: Version: 1:0.8.3+git20090917-0ubuntu4
xserver-xorg-video-intel: Version: 2:2.8.1-1ubuntu2

I can confirm that indeed the intel 845G driver has been blacklisted again:
# blacklist based on the pci ids
# See http://wiki.compiz-fusion.org/Hardware/Blacklist for details
#T=" 1002:5954 1002:5854 1002:5955" # ati rs480
#T="$T 1002:4153" # ATI Rv350
#T="$T 8086:2982 8086:2992 8086:29a2 8086:2a02 8086:2a12" # intel 965
#T="$T 8086:2a02 " # Intel GM965
T="$T 8086:3577 8086:2562 " # Intel 830MG, 845G (LP: #259385)
BLACKLIST_PCIIDS="$T"
unset T

However ... IMHO ... this does not mean the bug is fixed. It means that with this action the symptom is prevented.
I would very much like that a solution would come in which the intel driver can be removed from the blacklist and that compiz will be working again.
