Honestly I have no idea, other than seeing that people on the web as
well as most compiz/fusion tools seem to suggest doing so.
If it's a bug then compiz & compiz-fusion are obviouly aware about it,
since they provide workaround in their tools (and with compiz &
compiz-fusion I mean core devs & community). And if they provide two
workarounds, then either the bug is currently too involved to be fixed
in a timely manner or it is not a bug but intended behaviour.
In either case it would be nice to have Fedora work properly out of
the box. If it's a bug and does get fixed one day we can go back to
glib/gconf instead of ccp. Is there any reason otherwise not to just
patch gnome-wm to use ccp now?
I think that user settings will get left behind each time you switch
between configuration backends. That's a big negative.
A bugzilla report against the affected plugins will get some people
looking at whether it's a bug in the plugin or not.
