[compiz] gtk-window-decorator - No window borders

I think your problem is xorg related. Ubuntu Feisty has only parts of xorg 7.2 in the offical
repository and this causes some xrandr(?) problems.

Quote from #ubuntu+1 Channel topic:
"Xorg 7.2 will be in Feisty, It is being merged in Feisty in
pieces. | Compiz/Beryl will not work until X is fully merged"

You can find a link to a private repo which has 7.2 for x86 on the ubuntu forums.
