Description of problem:
After the last 'security update' that I had to do, and after rebooting, the windows manager stopped working (that is couldn't move any windows/minimize). 

I went to 'System'>'Preferences'>'look and feel'>'windows manager' and got the following error:

"window manager 'unknown' has not registered configuration tool"

I restarted metacity in the terminal and then from 'Personal'>'Sessions' I selected 'automatically remember etc'.

Then I realized that desktop-effects (which was working very well prior to the update) was not working anymore (no cube and no wobble). I tried to enable it and got the following error in the terminal:

 Fatal: No GLXFBConfig for default depth, this isn't going to work.
compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0

Steps to Reproduce:
1. 'desktop-effects' in terminal

I have updated to the latest version which appears to have fixed
the issue. Most likely the problem was related to the DRM issue which seems to
have been fixed in this kernel release.
