I have a problem with the 3D Functions of Unity after the Upgrade to 13.10.

I've got a ThinkPad R60 with Intel GMA950 Graphics. Low 3D performance, i know. But Unity worked well since 11.10. My Laptop is connected to my TV (1920x1080) and this also wasn't a problem, but I think now Ubuntu thinks I wan't to use both sceens (I only want to use the TV) and activates the CPU rendering for the compiz effects. Result: the performance is gone.

But, if I disconnect the TV, start the Laptop, log me in and connect the TV again, it works without cpu rendering. It works also when I enable auto-login (but I really don't want to enable that).

So, the question is: How can I get Unity to work as it was in 13.04? Does anybody have this problem or even better: A solution?
