There is no golden formula about what to do, I don't know Compiz
and for something that complex if I couldn't recreate it I'd leave
it or ask on one of the compiz irc channels.
If I could recreate it I'd pass it upstream.

But that's just my preference - remember you don't have to triage
and upstream every bug; if you're not comfortable leave it, and then
when you feel like it ask in places specific to the packages.
(Some of them can be hostile to downstream bugs/triagers of them so
tread carefully, some of them are very friendly about it).
