Not much can be done, it is a known bug. See #9933265 and #1019337 in LaunchPad. Wait for the fix. – netcoder Jul 27 '12 at 18:14

Like I said in my comment, not much can be done about this. This is a known bug in the compiz package:

You have to wait for a fix.

Until then, you can create a script that starts whatever program you want and restarts gtk-window-decorator when it exits.

Per example:


wine /path/to/program.exe
gtk-window-decorator --replace &

Then chmod +x and use it to launch whatever the program you want to run is.
