[Bug 852061] [NEW] Compiz on Kubuntu Oneiric does not show panels


Public bug reported:

After a recent update this week, the latest version of compiz appears to
prevent panels from showing up in KDE.

1) I am using Kubuntu Oneiric with all packages up to date.
2) The problem first occured in the past week, and is still present in compiz 1:
3) What I expect:  When logging into Kubuntu, I should have the desktop appear, windows should appear, and the panel(s) should appear.  Compiz should start, and I should be able to use compiz as I would use kwin, as a window manager.
4) What happens: when logging into Kubuntu, I see the desktop appear, I see a few windows appear, but the panels never show up.  Compiz starts, and I can rotate the desktop cube, but I never have access to the menus or tools on the panel.
5) workaround.  I can can right click on the desktop, and select "run command", then type in "kwin --replace".  Immediately, my panels appear, and compiz is turned off.

I still prefer to use compiz over kwin, so I would appreciate if anyone
could tell me why panels are being blocked by compiz - or if I need to
change a setting somewhere to make it work.

(KDE compatibility is turned on in CCSM, although the KDE/QT event loop
integration is turned off.)
