[Bug 740767] Re: gtk-window-decorator crashed with SIGSEGV in gwd_get_decor_frame()


I'm also experiencing the gtk-window-decorator crash whenever I hit
alt+space, in Ubuntu Classic (Natty, fully updated).  Compiz  seems to
work perfectly on my machine in every other regard.

A quick "compiz --replace" fixes things, but I find myself having to do
this frequently -- I'm accustomed to using alt+space a lot!

"apt-cache showpkg" lists my compiz version as

@Mr. Yoshida:  I hunted down the .debs of the
1:0.9.4git20110322-0ubuntu5 version of compiz, compiz-core et. al. you
mentioned, uninstalled the ones currently in the repo, and installed
your version.  I still get the same behavior -- I even tried rebooting.
If that version works flawlessly on your machine, yet I still get the
gtk-window-decorator crash using it, what do you think could account for
such a discrepancy?

Do you (or anyone else, for that matter) have any suggestions for
possible workarounds, or should I just wait for the bug to be assigned
and an official update released?
