Have you tried commenting out the "Enable" after Option "Composite"? If
so, after confirming that the X server is really using the config file
you are modifying (seems to be the case according to the info in the
original report though), you could try moving section "Extensions" to
the beginning of it, although that shouldn't make a difference...
