Ubuntu 9.10 compiz breaks vnc

I noticed that vnc client can't update the screen if I enable "Appearance Preference" to "Normal" or "Extra" on vnc server. This is extremely annoying :(

Compiz / vnc screen refresh with nvidia-restricted driver/VirtualBox/ATI fglrx driver using X.org prior to release 7.5

My current workaround is to ssh login to the vnc server and run the following command:

$ metacity --display :0.0 --replace & disown

This will set the Appearance setting to "None".
