What you can do in this situation is add a launcher that runs "metacity
--replace && secondlife" or whatever the command to run SL is. Then,
it'll disable CF before SecondLife starts. If you want to add a launcher
to restart CF, use compiz --replace. If you want to eliminate the black
window bug, you'll have to always run compiz with the --indirect option.
