Compiz disappears

When using Suse 11.1, my screen will kind of hiccup and then Compiz quits working. Everything is normal on screen, it just doesn’t have compiz working anymore (3d effects, etc.)

I have even installed OpenSuse 11.1 on a backup hard drive and I have the same issue happen.

I usually am working in two programs when it happens and I may have firefox running (listening to aol radio).

I have an amd 3700+ with a Nvidia gf4 Ti4200 video card, 2gb memory Ram.:\

Gnome or KDE 3/4??

Tell us what programs. Other than FF you were using.
