Firstly, Compiz doesn't run on start-up even when on start-up list, just leaves an icon on tool bar you must click to activate it.
Even when you do, Compiz effects don't immediately kick in but you must go into its window manager and -- even though it's "on button" is on you have to click it again to kick start it to go. When you do so, 1. you immediately lose all window control buttons.

You will find this tutorial helpful.

Also it is better to use ubuntu tweak rather than gconf-editor as gconf-editor did not work for me. Ubuntu tweak is available from the ubuntu tweak site, which is easiest found using google search.

Select export, and export your ccsm profile, in case you want to go back to it. Then import the profile I have provided below and see if it solves the compiz issues you are having. As an example I can see icons on all work spaces, so I think my profile may have the answers you are looking for.
