beryl invisible borders

I use Gentoo Linux at home. It's a pretty neat experience, and much easier than a compiled distribution might initially seem. I'm constantly updating to experimental packages on it, and one of my favorites is Beryl, a beautiful window manager. Recently, I noticed that beryl's window edges were invisible. I could still grab the invisible window title and drag it around, but not having visible borders was frustrating. I tried changing nvidia drivers, and updating beryl components, but I finally found that I needed to come off the bleeding edge. The beryl components were versioned 9999. Once I scaled back to th 0.2.1 (the current release), things returned to normal
