You had better go back to Metacity before you do anything in 3D
It's likely that none of these issues are bugs in nvidia's driver. See the Beryl wiki:

Opening too many windows leaves some of them black

This is a bug in the Nvidia drivers (as of now from 9625 beta too 9631 for legacy and up for others) that may be fixed in the future. This is because your video card doesn't have enough video memory. When you've used it all up with open windows, newly opened windows are left black. Reloading the window manager or resizing windows smaller or minimize other opened windows will make the currently-opened windows visible, but doesn't solve the problem. Some have had success with one of the following, though usually at the expense of a lower framerate:

* beryl --indirect-rendering
* beryl --strict-binding
* beryl --indirect-rendering --strict-binding
* beryl --force-aiglx
* beryl --use-copy

If you use the Blur plugin turning it off is beneficial since it leaves you with more video memory for your windows.
Seems to me, that it is a bug in nvidia-drivers..

One that has even been confirmed by nvidia, they just don't put many ressources into fixing it.

I was referring to the three issues mentioned only, "Further annoyances related to this bug." I know that the black windows problem is due to the nvidia driver not handling the starvation of VRAM well.

Upon further thought, though, I shouldn't have said anything. The first two obviously would be related to a lack of VRAM, and maybe the last as well (which I was thinking might be due to misconfiguration).

Same here with FX 5900XT and 128MB. Waiting for some months for a fix. Was quite disappointed that the 9755 release didn't. Would be nice to know if somebody is actually working on this.

Thanks, looking forward to a fix. Other than these buglets, the beryl+nvidia experience is awesome.

Will this issue also be solved for the 1.0.96xx driver series or will all the people without 1.0.97xx driver support be excluded from this fix? I am just asking this because I spent quite a lot of money on having an nvidia card in the opinion that it would be supported quite well, and now all the poeple that have bought a cheap intel graphics card enjoy beryl/compiz experience that is 100 times better than mine with an expensive nvidia card...
