  Desktop effects broken in Natty (upgrade and new install)

Status in Compiz:
  Won't Fix
Status in compiz package in Ubuntu:
  Won't Fix

Bug description:
  Upon upgrading to Natty (and I've observed this on a clean install), when I log in to the "Ubuntu Classic" desktop and enable Desktop Cube (which requires the OpenGL plugin) for compiz, I get a session with no window borders. If I run, from a console:
  gtk-window-decorator --replace
  the process seems to hang (strace also shows no activity after a second or two, ie no event processing or anything). Running:
  emerald --replace

  Steps to reproduce:
  1) upgrade to Natty (or install new)
  2) install CompizConfig Settings Manager (ccsm)
  3) run ccsm
  4) select OpenGL plugin (or Desktop Cube which will require the OpenGL plugin)
  5) resolve any keyboard or plugin conflicts (Desktop Cube conflicts with Desktop Wall, for example)
  6) plugins are applied, window borders disappear (though the desktop cube effect is working)
  7) logging in again produces a session with no window borders
  8) running "gtk-window-decorator --replace" from a console hangs
  9) running "emerald --replace" from a console crashes
  10) running "metacity --replace" from a console regains a useful windowed desktop

  Note that when there were no window borders, I could find no gtk-
  window-decorator or emerald process in the current process list.
