edge flipping in 12.04 ubuntu fix

Today I was using the wall on the desktop with my Ubuntu 12.04 and I noticed a weird behavour: the edge works onloy the 1st time.
After a bit of debugging here is a workaround:
install gconf-editor: 
$ sudo apt-get install gconf-editor

Open gconf-editor, go to apps > compiz-1 > general > screen0 > options 

 edit the active plugin list so that wall should be down on the list. I have it before scale addon. 

Now if you haven't before you have to enable edge flipping and bindings in compiz config settings manager (see image) and voila'...

hope you find it useful
