I can easily reproduce this bug.  Emacs does get restored, but metacity is
buggy, and doesn't draw the window correctly. Other apps also don't redraw correctly with metacity and compositing_manager true. For example, Chromium menus don't pop down and are left on the screen, the Gnome panel sometimes vanishes, and so on. If you wan't compositing_manager use compiz, it is nowhere near as buggy as metacity. Emacs (and other apps) works fine with it.

BTW, you probably meant (set-frame-parameter nil 'alpha 94). Also, please use report-emacs-bug for bugs like these.

    with /apps/metacity/general/compositing_manager set to true
and (setf (frame-parameter nil 'alpha) 94), once  Emacs  is minimized
it can no longer be restored. This is the commit that introduces the bug:

I reverted to the version before this commit, but the bug in metacity remains. It is probably a fluke that your meatcity works with that version.
