[compiz] Possible Bug in multiple Compiz 1-Click Install

	There was no rhyme or reason why another /usr/lib/libIndirectGL.so.1
got installed on my system, but it did:

[root Rankin-P35a/home/david] # l /usr/lib/libIn*?
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 440676 2007-09-21 20:34
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     20 2007-10-12 03:00
/usr/lib/libIndirectGL.so.1.old -> libIndirectGL.so.1.2*?
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     20 2007-10-26 20:37
/usr/lib/libIndirectGL.so.1.old.2 -> libIndirectGL.so.1.2*?

	Some part of the install creates the link of:

/usr/lib/libIndirectGL.so.1 -> libIndirectGL.so.1.2

	At another part of the process

/usr/lib/libIndirectGL.so.1 is mv to /usr/lib/libIndirectGL.so.1.old to
eliminate the .so.1 library.

	If a second one click install on opensuse 10.3 is attempted, the mv
from .so.1 to .so.1.old fails (because .old is already present) leaving
the .so.1 lib. This causes the error:

compiz (core) - 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

	Deleting the .so.1 lib completely restores compiz to a working condition.

Does this need reporting?
