Compiz/Gnome Workspaces not scrolling

On Ubuntu 9.10.
Compiz is the development version, and Gnome is whatever the one that is in the Ubuntu repositories. I'll find out what exact versions later.

Note this is not a post-upgrade problem, it's only just started, and previously has been working fine.
When using the mousewheel on the desktop, the workspaces no longer scroll to the next/previous one.

I've made sure the Compiz Desktop wall is active, and I've been told to go into gconf-editor and set the next/previous entries to Button4 and Button5 (Which I assume is mouse scroll forward and back) but even after applying or setting those as default, it still doesn't allow scrolling to workspaces.

Using the Gnome panel applet by clicking on the desired workspace still works though.
