It appears that kmod-nvidia has not been fully updated and tested as there are no new packages even in livna testing (http://livna-dl.reloumirrors.net/fedora/testing/9/) yet. Probably ready in few more days. Then you should be able to enable desktop effects after restarting X.

There is an "ugly" answer to your question.

Downgrade all the xorg packages with all their dependencies to Fedora 8 packages. While it is not an elegant solution, it works. At least, it worked for me.
