GNOME goes crazy w/ Desktop Effects

So I consider my work machine a pretty powerful box… 2gb ram, 2.2 ghz processor etc. On board video.

In OpenSuSe 11 I had desktop effects working. Wobbly, fade, etc. All looked great. I upgraded to 11.1 and it’s not as good. I can’t get wobbly to work. When I do enable desktop effects, it’s generally misbehaving. My titlebars will disappear from windows randomly, and the system will just lock up. I can’t tell, but did something change from 11 to 11.1 when it comes to these effects?
