A minor problem?
For you probably, but for the non-technical user who doesn't know how to display properly the wallpaper, it's a big problem..
And the point is that it wasn't fixed in the distribution.

when I say a minor, I mean easy to fix instead to make another composing system.

From what the KDE developers say, it's actually the opposite with compositing taking up only a couple percent of the code base and little corner cases and fixes making up > 90%. They're also providing several new features, like a stable API and falling back gracefully when the video card doesn't support compositing. What's going to take resources are creating the effects themselves, which Compiz has tons of and a great community surrounding it.
