Same here... I just enabled "Desktop Effects" on my Inspiron 8600
(Radeon 9600 Mobility, r300) and Latitude X1 (Intel i915 IIRC) and both
work perfectly. Only three minor annoyances I can see right now :
- No sticky windows, nor does gkrellm appear on more than one desktop
- The sloppy focus was disabled after the switch, I had to re-enable it
- It seems to not be possible to have more than 4 workspaces

I'll go looking for where to report these now, as I can't live with
"only" 4 workspaces anymore ;-) Not even if the tradeoff is to have
wobbly windows.

And of course, my new workstation will arrive in 2 days... with an
Nvidia card, rats! :-(
