I have'nt used it, but isn't it working like it's supposed to ?

Don't think its an error or something, configure it properly in compiz control panel

WHAT operating system are you USING ?
and what is your 3d card , an ATI or Nvidia . Also what driver do you have installed for it?
Have you done the required editing of the xorg.conf that Some versions of Linux will need , depending ON YOUR 3d CARD .
