As I understand your problem, it's probably the Window Manager (Compiz) that crashed, or at least that stopped compositing (so no transparency).

yes, because the Window manager terminates, and it probably terminates before the dock, so you get the black background.

Is it not possible to find a workaround? (but maybe this workaround should be added in the window manager...)

activating the fake transparency maybe
but it's just for 1 second before closing the session, no big deal

I meant automatic fake transparency just when the window manager stops
I don't recommend you to enable the fake transparency each time you shut down the PC

doesnt`t it keep configured?
I checked the box fake transparency on sub menu behavior!!

you don't need fake transparency, Compiz can handle the transparency very well, it's just that it stops before the dock

But feel free to report this bug to Compiz devs on Launchpad. It's maybe possible to enable a workaround when logging out (e.g. a fade out effect, etc.)
