Hey guys, I'm a longtime 10.04 user who's avoided upgrading to 12.04 due to a severe dislike of Unity and past nightmare scenarios in trying to get around it. I was recently forced to upgrade to 12.04 for requirement issues and the nightmare has begun anew. Anyone who can offer help for any of the following situations will have my undying gratitude.

Please note I have installed gnome-panel and gnome-tweak-tool, and unity is still installed. Ideally I'd like to be able to work in Gnome Classic view. Effects are not necessary as long as I have the functionality I want.

1) Noticing that none of the Gnome options provide Alt+Tab functionality for switching windows, I turned it on in CompizConfig Settings Manager under Window Management > Application Switcher. Since then, every time I use Gnome classic all of the windows are lacking a title bar, and the only thing that fixes it is running "compiz --replace" in a terminal (I tried resetting Compiz to default settings, and turning Window Decoration on and off; neither worked). Actually using Alt+Tab to app switch either freezes the system, glitches the top Gnome panel, or eradicates the title bar again. Turning the Application Switcher off again doesn't fix the title bar issue either.

UPDATE: After trying "Reset to Defaults" in Compiz again, "compiz --replace" has stopped restoring window title bars. Instead I get this message in the terminal:
