Your only half right, the driver still has 3 major bugs i notice... i don't use compiz normally, however right nwo i have it enabled due to major bugs with rendering the gnome system monitor with the compiz disabled...

this command does not work:

second bug: see my previously mentioned statement about having compiz disabeld and the rendering of gnome system monitor being unusable... moving the window causes major errors across the screen ( last known to work somewhat properly is 8.4 driver release)
sudo sh ati-driver-installer-8-6-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/8.04
third bug: Xvideo output problems due to compiz...
mplayer ( ubuntu repository) and VLC's xvideo output flickers badly when in windowed mode.
smplayer does not render any video when the video output is set to XV. ( using latest svn release of mplayer )
mplayer does not render video in full screen, but renders windowed properly. (revision 27099 of mplayer)
smplayer does not render video at all when using the revision 27099 of mplayer.
oh and on a quick note, when you have doom 3 running in windowed mode with compiz it tends to flicker a little bit, but not as bad as the video's being played in mplayer and vlc using the xvideo output.
