Compiz Settings App crashes

Ubuntu Unity 23.04

Compiz Settings application freezes and then crashes on start-up (when user caution pop-up window appears, before making any changes). It seemed to work fine on 22.10.

This on an older Thinkpad x220 (Intel® Core™ i5-2520M, Intel HD Graphics 3000).
Anyone else experience a similar issue?

FYI, after recent updates, the problem has gone away.

Compiz is the biggest problem with Unity, it seems to be involved in all crashes here.
I understand the new UnityX removes that requirement but this may never see the light of day.

I just downloaded Ubuntu 23.04 Unity a few days ago. Ran updates, restarted, ran more updates. Compiz does the exact same thing for me.
