      I've got a feeling, that this might be related to HW Cursor, because sometimes (when switching windows) something similar is around the cursor, but goes away after switching windows again.

      Sorry for the bad quality, I've only got a mobile phone and on screenshot this doesn't appear.

      Normally after a restart of the X Server it is gone, but it'll come back after a while (or if I'm lucky it stays away for a session).

        Okay, that's some corruption. With Fedora I had experienced that but only with the watermark, but on Ubuntu even with the watermark I don't experience that. I know AMD is aware of it.

          Ok, good to know.
          What really bothers me is, that I know that I have to wait for a month till this get fixed, although it looks like a minor problem (maybe it isn't).

          They really should start releasing bugfix releases.
          It's really sad, because apart from that the driver (for me) is better in every way (Even switching to console works now sometimes and doesn't always result in a hang.).

          • This is to someone who could possibly share some light about it: (Michael?)

            It's getting closer to 48 hours since the 8.42.3 came out unofficially, this could means ATI/AMD is trying to at least fix some packages install problems, like the one is happening with Ubuntu 7.10 64bits?

            Anyone?

              Exactly the same corruption I saw on my 9600XT in 8.41 and now 8.42 - this is realistically the only thing holding me back from using 8.42 - I can tolerate glibc double-free errors when GL applications close, and so long as I have RENDER and Composite firmly _disabled_ in xorg.conf performance seems fine.

              Glad someone got a shot of it - I couldn't get a screenie.

                    Well, it only really happens when Dual-Head is turned on, but yeah, it's kind of crazy that would get into the release.
