I have installed Ubuntu 11.04 on Dell Inspiron M5030 (AMD Phenom II P360 CPU and Radeon HD 4250 graphics). However I cannoy log in to either Ubuntu (i.e. Unity) or Ubuntu Classic session. All I get after logging in is a screen with only the wallpaper, and no desktop. There is no panels or icons.
However Ubuntu Classic (no effects) works. I have tried with both the open source drivers and FGLRX. When I try to start compiz from the Ubuntu Classic (using compiz --replace) I get the same blank desktop with the wallpaper.

Here is the output:

I have been having exactly the same problem on my Dell M5010 with the same ATI Mobility 4200 video. Although I am starting to get used to the Classic Gnome w/ no effects option, it is aggravating. I am working on trying to fix it now and will let you know if I succeed.
