    Forget my previous post on this subject. I still get the corruption with the 8.38.7 driver, just sufficiently less often that it looked like it was fixed.

      I am back on versions again. I have been running 8.40.4 for a week now and have not seen the corruption in all that time.

      Is there anyone using 8.40.4 that still has the problem?

          Workaround:
          apply this patch made by Kano http://www.rage3d.com/board/showpost...87&postcount=6

          and the logo problem disappear (but the mouse problem persists).

          See this discussion http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4235

          Kano... would you make a patch also for our mouse problem??

            Another workaround is to disable dri. Performance of 3d apps like marble now sucks, but at least I am rid of the corruption, both mouse and bottom right square.

              I kept dri disabled till now, but I hate slow opengl screensavers

                For me screen corruptions disappeared after putting the lines below into xorg.conf's device section (where my current fglrx 8.42.3 driver was).

                Code:
                Option	    "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
                Option	    "BlockSignalsOnLock" "on"
                Option	    "KernelModuleParm" "locked-userpages=0"
                ps: It's either all lines or one of them - so, good luck .
