Devs, compiz listmates:

	Why can't I turn off compiz autostart on openSuSE 10.3 i386? Compiz just 
decided to start automatically with KDE login ever since I upgraded to the 
first 0.7.4.x release from the openSuSE build service. I have tried to disable 
it by creating the file "disable-compiz" in ~/.config/compiz but compiz still 
starts at login. Even if I switch to kwin before logoff/shutdown, compiz still 
starts at the next login. I am currently using fglrx-8.476 and it is working great!

	Moreover, when compiz starts by itself, it is using KDE window decorations 
despite setting the window decoration to emerald with fusion-icon and 
confirming that it was in fact set in .config/compiz/compizconfig/Default.ini

as_command = emerald --replace

	Currently the following versions of each package are installed by yast:


	How can I make compiz not start at KDE login? Can I set a switch or something 
in a .ini file. If it shouldn't be starting by itself, what/where is the most 
likely cause?

	It is a bit annoying to have to switch back to kwin and then back into compiz 
to get emerald decorations loaded. Additionally, there are some things I can't 
use compiz with like video or external monitor for presentations.

	Other than that, compiz is working great with many improvements! Window 
scrolling is much improved and now crisp with no lag between scroll input and 
the action taking place. The speed and smoothness of desktop switching is also 
much improved for all ctrl+alt+<down arrow> , ctrl+alt+<left/right> and 
ctrl+alt+[left click and grab]. The only issue I have is this autostart mess.

	Thank you for your help!
