ATI driver 8.42.3, Radeon X1300 and compiz

Tonight I squandered a few hours of valuable sleeping time on the ATI 8.42 driver, which is rumoured to support AIGLX, and Xanthippe's Radeon X1300. Installing the thing worked OK, there was reasonable output from glxgears and fglrxinfo. Enabling AIGLX following this thread got me simply no 3d acceleration and the KWin window manager, while running the driver on XGL I experienced compiz with a nice desktop freeze.
I suppose I'll just wait for the next release...

N.B.: At least I'm not alone - and ATI seem to ship monthly driver releases right now.
