Isn't that turned on by default?

Thanks for the clarification Mario.  I've been through so many
combinations of drivers and compiz it has started to bleed together.  :)

Joe:  I have a xorg.conf using the Ubuntu-shipped open source driver

running on the laptop and think it might help you, let me know and I'll
send it to you offlist.
