FindRoot and Compile

The following used to work in 4.2

y = Compile[{x}, x^2 - 2 == 0]

FindRoot[y[x], {x, .9}]

{x -> 1.41421}



With 5.01 I get the Message:

CompiledFunction::cfsa: "Argument x at position 1 should be a 
machine-size real number"

In this case I did not get the trick with_?NumericQ to work . Maybe I 
am not doing it correctly.
Any suggestions?

Thanks
Matthias
