Thanks Kristian!

Unfortunately, I get all kinds of crazy artifacts when I run xcompmgr.

I have also noticed that any gecko control in an application (Firefox 
browser window, Thunderbird HTML panel, etc) seems to flicker like 
crazy. In Firefox's case, the tabs seem to flip back and forth 

The effects look cool until my computer completely locks up though. :)

I'll have to file a bug report.
