Don't ask us, ask ATI.
In the mean time, you can disable the compositor in xfwm4 from its command line
on = Turn internal compositor on if composite extensions are present on the display,
auto = enable X Server compositor, do not use xfwm4 compositor,
off = Turn off compositing all together.
So in your case, simply fire a terminal and do:
killall xfwm4 && xfwm4 --compositor=off &
Then when you save the session, it will remain off.
If, later on you wish to switch it on again, do the reverse like that:
killall xfwm4 && xfwm4 --compositor=on &
