Help with Compiz 0.9.5 on GNOME please!

I'm trying to get Compiz to work on GNOME 3.2. I sucessfully instlaled the compiz packages needed and logged out of GNOME shell and logged in with the option "Classic GNOME with Compiz"

I can get *some* compiz features working, however alot of the time when I enable/disable/change a plugin in compiz, it crashes, and I have to restart X to get my desktop back to a useable state. I went ahead and setup Compiz through GNOME shell and logged back into classic mode, compiz seems to be working fairly well, with some graphical glitches.

For example, if there is a program window open, and i close it, the program closes, but parts of (or the whole window) will remain until another program is clicked on. Sometimes i have to drag another program over the parts of the screen where the left-overs are to get them to dissapear.

Also I'm unable to get diffrent backgrounds on each of my work spaces, i'm not quite sure why.
