Ditto on FC14 x86_64 / Lenovo T61 notebook / Gnome desktop / nvidia-graphics.x86_64 : NVIDIA Linux Display Driver.
The only solution I have found is to turn off desktop effects (System/Preferences/Desktop Effects/Standard), but this disables one function in the Simon voice control application (http://simon-listens.org/
), which depends on a compositing window manager to display a mouse control grid.
With compiz active, editing a document in OpenOffice.org Writer became an unpleasant challenge and many other apps were also affected.

On further investigation, I found this
post. By following the instruction to edit /usr/bin/compiz-manager, I have solved the problem - at least, all the tests I have tried have worked OK. Editing in Writer is no longer a chore and refreshing scrolled lists has started to work properly.
I hope it works for you.
