[Bug 1057929] [NEW] compiz process running but plugin bindings lost


Public bug reported:

In about 50 % of boots after login - although compiz process is running, I cannot use the key/mouse bindings.
Not sure if all plugins affected, but at least "Desktop Wall", "Scale Windows" or "Application Switcher".

It already happened also during work that at some point I noticed that
the bindings are not working any more although after login they did.

Pressing ALT+F2 and executing a compiz --replace fixes the problem then
- which is for me not a real problem but the normal user would need to
google a lot until finding out and probably tries multiple re-logins for
getting lucky.
