kde 4.1 window decorations are gone

I switched to 'compiz' in the sessions setup in kde 4.1 and lost all window decorations. Setting it back to 'kwin' did not restore the window decorations/frame. Blew away my ~/.kde and ~/.kde4 directories and still no window decorations.

Using gnome now.

rm ~/.kde and ~/.kde4 from gnome

If I remove the kde directories while using gnome and then switch back to kde the window decorations are restored. I'm still using gnome as my default window manager.
