Default Re: compiz (or other Composite WM ) + glxgears (or other OpenGL app) = crash

Ok, I guess I was completely wrong... I did some more testing tonight, and found that although Enemy Territory (which I was certain was an OpenGL game) runs just fine with 177.67/compiz/etc... a simple game like Neverball crashes the system just like before. After disabling compositing everything runs fine, including wine.

So what am I missing here? Is there something special about ET that allows it to run fullscreen in OpenGL, or am I completely off?

I'm happy that the crashing is resolved for those people not running compiz, but I enjoy compiz... and would rather not sacrifice one for the other. Compiz and OpenGL applications ran fine in 169.X so what changed since then?
