First of all upgrade your host gpu drivers, as they look pretty old. "GL_VERSION: 1.4.0 - Build" and intel have already.

If upgrading doesn't help, please attach glxinfo output from the guest system. Most likely 945gm does *NOT* support "non power of two textures" and in this case Compiz will *NOT* work with this card.
