[Beryl] Window manager defauting to compiz?


For some reason when i start beryl-manager (or KDE starts it with autostart), it is choosing Compiz as the window manger which means nothing works. If i right click on the diamond and manually set it to beryl, everything works fab.

Is there any way to remove compiz from this list or at least force it to be Beryl every time?
For some reason under 'select window manager' i have:

Beryl (works and want this to be the default for my xGL sessions)
Compiz (Doesn't work)
Compiz with COW (dont know what COW is but haven't tried this option)
KWin (want this to be the default for a nonXGL KDE session)

even though i have never installed Compiz (looking at Adept package manager, while it appears compiz ISNT installed, comp-z-core and compiz-plugins are! When i try to remove them i get an error)

Thanks
