AFAIK, this issue still occurs with Compiz disabled or not installed at all (at least, it affects my system that way).

The temporary fix is to download and run the fixmtrr.sh script [1] as root (with 'sudo') every time you start up your system. So for example, if you saved the script in your home directory you'd need to open a terminal window and run 'sudo ~/fixmtrr.sh' (without the quotes) on each login.

I think we'd all appreciate it if the kernel fix arrived soon. =)
