Sorry, forgot that I ended up installing the shame version since the debian
version refuses to draw any window decorations no matter what window decorator
I loaded (it essentially behaved as if there was no window manager loaded at

just made sure with versions 1:0.6.2-0~emiscabpo+3~debian1 and git20071104
that that problem still exists and the matlab/mathematica/maple problem is
still present as well

Don't know what compiz redirecting is, is there a way to check this? All these
programs work great with xfwm4 which also has compositing, so this is not a
compositing  issue but some issue with how compiz handles windows.

Tried playing with the redirection options but it didn't help

I did move all of these now to use sun's java 1.6 instead of their installed
1.5 and it solved the problem for maple and matlab but not mathematica, I tried
jabref and it is ok if it makes a difference
