This may indeed be true, but won't calm down most of the people in launchpad experiencing this issue. It would be interesting though to get a statement from a nvidia driver developer whether
1. This issue was not known
2. This issue is known and on the TODO list
3. This issue is known but won't be addressed for some reason
As stated on the launchpad post, the issue does not appear to be with compiz directly since it worked back in 2008. One possibility might be a change at xserver level which was not taken into consideration by the nvidia binary driver (among other) - for this reason an "official" statement would be nice.
