Description of problem:
After starting gnome-compiz-preferences, a window pops up and says:

Die Typen stimmen nicht überein: Liste erwartet, jedoch string erhalten
Die Typen stimmen nicht überein: Liste erwartet, jedoch string erhalten
Die Typen stimmen nicht überein: Liste erwartet, jedoch string erhalten

which should translate to:
Type mismatch: List expected, received string

Most options seem to work properly even though, but what bugs me is, that if I switch to the Desktop-tab, I no longer can configure the "Active Screen Corner" Section.
The four combo-boxes are empty (really empty, they do not contain "-"). Choosing            "-" or "Clear annotations" for the uper right corner does not work, even not after loggin out or a ctrl - alt - <--.

In F9s default configuration, moving the mouse to the upper right corner enables the "window overview". I like that feature, but not in the upper right corner.
Dozens of times I or my girlfriend accidentally active(s) this feature and this really bugs us.

Since gnome-compiz-preferences does not seem to work, I currently habe no clue how to change that behavior.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start with custom fedora 9 install
2.activate GL-Desktop
3.try to change the behavior of the right upper screen corner (Active Screen corner)

Actual Results:
Nothing, and exactly this is the probem.

Expected Results:
The Active Screen Corners should be configurable by the user

Additional info:
If you need any information just ask, I'll be happy to help you.
