No, 5.1. gives the same error. beamerbasecompatibility.sty contains
the code

\ifx\ifGm at compatii\@undefined%
\def\Gm at lmargin{\Geom at lmargin}\def\Gm at rmargin{\Geom at rmargin}

but geometry no longer defines the switch \ifGm at compatii.

I would say beamer should change its code. It doesn't sound senseful
to maintain compabilitity to geometry 2.0.
