Hello guys
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/compiz/+bug/634417

<https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/compiz/+bug/634417>As described
in the bug report above, we (design team) decided to change two default
options for package compiz. Essentially:
1) the inactive window decorations are no longer transparent (that should
not affect any doc, neither sshots)
2) we shifted the shadow down by 4 pixels. The rationale behind this is that
the shadow over the menubar item when a menu was opened (the shadow of the
menu over the menubar item) was ruining the "merged/blended" appearance of
the menu/menubaritem in the new Ambiance/Radiance themes: if you move the
shadow down by 4 pixels the shadow disappears almost, and the menubaritem
looks like it is part of the menu (something we decided).

That decision was taken in July, but it's our fault because nobody took care
of patching compiz, so I did it personally two weeks ago, after UI freeze
(didn't have time before). Sorry.
