  compiz static window switcher no longer displaying window titles after

Status in compiz package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have my Unity desktop configured to use the static application
  switcher plugin.  After upgrading to compiz
  1:0.9.11+14.04.20140218-0ubuntu1 (and related packages) today, and
  restarting my session, I find that the window switcher no longer
  displays window titles.  This is a major regression - the whole reason
  I'm using the static switcher is because a thumbnail-based picker is
  useless for distinguishing between many similar-looking windows!

  I was going to look at tracking this down in the code, but the
  previous version I had installed, 1:0.9.10+13.10.20131011-0ubuntu4,
  has no matching commit in the compiz bzr branch; there are no per-
  upload tags, and the changelog deltas are inserted on top of a tree
  that doesn't match what was uploaded.  So it's not very practical to
  track this back to a related commit.
