Default Full Screen Opengl App issue with Compiz and Nvidia

I am using the latest 9626 beta drivers on both a nvidia 6150 and a nvidia 7600 gt videocard on 2 different machines running Ubuntu Edgy Eft. I setup Compiz from freedesktop.org as Beryl was giving me a lot of issues and had stability issues. I am currently running version 0.32 of compiz and everything works great except there is 1 issue. I cant run any opengl apps in fullscreen. If it's running in windowed mode it works fine. Some examples are gnome screensaver and world of warcraft through cedega. For gnome screensaver i can see the screensavers fine but if i hit preview the bar that goes at the top is in the middle of the screen and nothing appears. For Warcraft either it opens and runs very very slow or crashes. If I set it to run in a windowed mode it runs fine and has a very small performance hit thats barely noticable.

Does anyone have any ideas what causes this? Is there a solution?

I run compiz and opengl programs crash it. To get around it I use the xlaunch script
