I have already disabled Compiz. As I mentioned I was having other  
things crop up as well. I was getting windows going gray and seeming  
to lock up, but they were just bogging down. All of that has stopped  
since I disabled Compiz. I don't recall any of those problems under  
Beryl. And I have a Pentium IV 3.0 Ghz CPU with Hyper Threading and 2  
GB of RAM. There seem to be some serious problems with Compiz at this
