Default FC6 and compiz

Could we have confirmation of whether FC6 will work with the "desktop-effects"?
from what I can see it will not without a patched version of compbiz.
I just get segfault

Oct 31 23:15:09 localhost kernel: metacity[12062]: segfault at 0000000000000058 rip 0000000000416a8a rsp 00007fffacb0f770 error 4
Oct 31 23:18:49 localhost kernel: metacity[12195]: segfault at 0000000000000058 rip 0000000000416a8a rsp 00007fff87589200 error 4

This is on a dual screen amd64 dual core btw, from what I have read other people have this problem, but there is no answer to it.

and fc6 comes with compiz-0.0.13-0.32.20060817git.fc6

Default Re: FC6 and compiz

FC6 compiz worked out of the box for me with 96.26 available from livna-testing but I had to edit xorg.conf according to what I posted on www.thenerdshow.com to get the fancy desktop effects to work.
