Menu problem with 11.0 (Compiz problem?)

Hi All -

I’m about 2 weeks into using OpenSUSE. I thought I had successfully gotten my ATI drivers and Compiz installed (though I still don’t have desktop effects running), but I have one strange glitch: my popup/dropdown menus don’t work. When I click on them I see something flash and then disappear. If I do a quick click+drag to get my cursor to a point in the menu where something is selected, then sometimes the menu stays. Otherwise it just disappears. It sounds similar to what was described in this post,but since that post was a few years old and for an older distro I couldn’t glean much help from it.

I’m running:
Machine: Thinkpad T60
OS: Linux i686
System: openSUSE 11.0 (i586)
KDE: 4.0.4 (KDE 4.0.4 >= 20080505) “release 15.2”
Display Info
Vendor: ATI Technologies Inc
Model: ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 (M54 7145)
Driver: fglrx
