Everything used to work beautifully until 9.44
What does not
The programs appears but does not have a window to manage the program with, nor is there a corresponding icon in the task bar. The program still seems to function well but makes the program nigh on impossible to manage.

If any one that has tried the latest comiz and finds the problem is fixed please let me know. Otherwise JWPCE should work flawlessly outside of compiz, feedback contrary to this assertion is appreciated. Latest Compiz has fixed these issues, works in and outside of compiz with no problems at all.
Update: The compiz devel folks have made a patch for compiz that addresses this problem and is part of an online repository. The fix, as far as I know has not been integrated into any stable or development version yet though, here is the link. http://gitweb.opencompositing.org/?p=fusion/plugins/workarounds;a=commit;h=ddea8b07cf3046e2bb72dd5bc5161a6d24ef9f16
As far as I can tell the issue of no borders has been fixed.
