It is not apparent to me as to what action is causing this - initially it
happened when moving the mouse over the kde panel, it has also happened while
scrolling pages in Firefox.

Bug has only occured since yum update, today.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

xorg-x11-drv-nv-1.2.0-3 was installed today.

How reproducible:

The more things going on on the screen, the more likely it is to happen.

Steps to Reproduce:

Make the screen busy.  And wait for an inconvenient moment.

Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) to the bug report
as individual uncompressed file attachment using the bugzilla file attachment
link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

You may also consider upgrade to FC6
(http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Distribution), many issues found in the previous
distributions were fixed there.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.
