Cannot load Compiz/Emerald

I currently use Compiz and Emerald, this morning I found I could no longer start Emerald. When I enter "emerald --replace" into a terminal, the term just hangs and does not replace my window decorations.

This worked for me previously so it may be related to system updates I installed yesterday.
