It isn't working on intel either (in rawhide). Compiz freezes ui,
metacity with compositing turned on breaks many things. I don't know any
other compositing capable managers that work with gnome.

Not fast is not an option. Either working fast (and stable) or it is not
acceptable as default. Also, AFAIK, whether the compositing is turned on
or not depends on window manager (in our case metacity), not gtk or even
theme engine.

Not all balloons are here for only 5 seconds. It's not unusual to have
it on for about 15 or more seconds.
