Odd output from compiz --replace

Asked by samuel on 2012-02-17

I ran compiz --replace, to see if it was any different from the unity window manager, however, I got the usual expected output, and then this
compiz (core) - Warn: no exact match for ConfigureNotify on 0x3a00090!
compiz (core) - Warn: expected the following changes:
compiz (core) - Warn: sibling: 0xbf857920
compiz (core) - Warn: instead got:
compiz (core) - Warn: x: 0
compiz (core) - Warn: y: 0
compiz (core) - Warn: width: 1600
compiz (core) - Warn: height: 900
compiz (core) - Warn: above: 0
compiz (core) - Warn: this should never happen. you should probably file a bug about this.

Is this serious?
