White screen problem with Compiz - Using Debian testing with an intel 945GM card

This is my first time posting a linux issue into a forums. In general I was able to sort thing myself out or find enough info on the net but I got stuck with this one.

I am unable to get compiz to work on my Dell E1405 laptop for quite a while now.

I am using a Debian testing distribution. Today I want to start fresh and I start out with a new xorg.conf file by doing.

# dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

It was good to see that almost everything was working fine without any specific xorg.conf configuration. Everything was detected perfectly (driver, modules, modes, dri, etc on run time).

I do have direct rendering enabled:

$ glxinfo | grep direct
DISPATCH ERROR! _glapi_add_dispatch failed to add glAreTexturesResident!
DISPATCH ERROR! _glapi_add_dispatch failed to add glGenTextures!
DISPATCH ERROR! _glapi_add_dispatch failed to add glIsTexture!
libGL warning: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x67
do_wait: drmWaitVBlank returned -1, IRQs don't seem to be working correctly.
Try adjusting the vblank_mode configuration parameter.
direct rendering: Yes

Now, I have tried tons of different xorg.conf configurations and everything led to the same or very similar problem.

The problem is well described here: but not with a useful fix. Yes, installing the latest everything might work but I'd like if someone is able to help me getting this to work using my current debian testing packages.

Following are the conf and log files.

I will really appreciate any help.
Please feel free to ask whatever info you might need to help me solve the problem.

Thanks a lot!
