X11, Window Managers Ever since its inception, there have been problems with Compiz; people unsatisfied with the direction of the project forked it, then they merged again. Recently, the project, now known as Compiz Fusion, faced other problems, such as multiple branches and a lack of direction. A major reorganisation of the project is supposed to fix all this.

Seems that KDE (or actually, the latest QT) exposes a number of deficiencies in the nVidia binary driver.
nVidia is aware of this problem and trying to fix it.

You may want to try the InitialPixmapPlacement and GlyphCache settings. [1] (In theory, they are no longer needed, but I'm stilling using them and both 2D and kwin composition seem to be working just fine)
