[Bug 1232299] Re: Compiz doesn't undo profile change after processing upgrade


** Description changed:

  gnome-session-flashback (Flashback (No Effects)) which runs with Metacity works fine.
  gnome-session-flashback (Flashback) which runs with Compiz starts Unity instead.
  It works very well with Metacity, but if you use Compiz, then you get a
  conflict with Unity. That is; you get both Unity and Gnome Panel running
  at the same time.

+     desktop environment and log in
+ (3) you should not see the Unity Launcher
+ [Regression Potential]
