No Compiz with current Kernels - but compiz with Linux alchemy 2.6.32-lts OK - Huh?

On my box I continue to have problems with the current kernels on, booting lts

Any thoughts on why compiz won't run on 2.6.34-2 or 22.214.171.124-1?
I'll keep tinkering, but any help would be appreciated...
Here is a bit more information:
I don't do anything different when booting or starting Arch with any of the
kernels or the radeon driver. I am totally confused why compiz works great with
LTS, but white-screens with the current kernel. For both kernels, I don't use an
xorg.conf and the modules loaded look the same:

The weirdest thing is the box not booting a 2nd time?? You can create a kernel
image for the 2.6.34 kernels, boot the damn thing ONCE and ONLY ONCE, then the
next time you boot the kernel starts spewing NULL Pointer Errors and dies?? Weird.
