Weird issue with glxgears (or any opengl rendering?)

glxgears and google-earth both have this weird behaviour (probably all openGL apps do) - they both kind of "show through" other active windows - the borders and menu don't show through, just the actual openGL rendered parts I think.

the best way to describe is with a screengrab or two. see attached for what they both look like when they are BEHIND a swiftfox window...

edit: I now found this is due to using a composite manager (in my case xcompmgr) - when I disable that, the openGL apps no longer show through - any idea how to fix that??!
