Compiz Fusion and VMware Workstation 7 not playing nice

On a default install of Ubuntu 9.10, with 3D acceleration enabled on VMware, Compiz Fusion is not working.  :( 
"Desktop effects could not be enabled"
So it's either troubleshoot this or look at Virtual Box....

[UPDATE] I finally broke down and read the help file...  I stumbled upon this gem:
Under the section Support for Direct3D Graphics: 
Prepare a Virtual Machine for Accelerated 3-D
Before you begin, make sure the guest operating system is Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7.

Isn't that swell.

[UPDATE Jan 11, 2010] Fixed performance problems, see my latest post here:
