If your definition of 'works' is 'unbearably slow, making the desktop
unusable for normal tasks', then sure, it 'works'. ^_~

Did you test those with the nvidia binary drivers?  I haven't yet, but I
might go to the effort if you haven't.  Have you reproduced my 100% CPU
issue?  You mentioned before that you weren't able to.  Note that I
don't get a crash at all, just 100% CPU utilisation on the X process
after 1-2 hours of xfwm4 runtime.  Restarting only xfwm4 fixes the
problem for another 1-2 hours.

That's unfortunate, since it's mostly impossible to prove it either way.
 Pretty much anything I can say (such as, "it works ok with SVN revision
X, but not with Y"), you can just say "well I guess I'm just exposing a
bug in nvidia's drivers".  *sigh*  Ah well; it's a shame to have to
disable the compositor, but that's really the only option open.  Perhaps
'nv' will perform better in 6.7.0.

Thanks for looking into this...
