Description Tom London 2008-06-12 10:59:41 EDT
Description of problem:
After today's Rawhide, I notice that my background has sort-of random text
artifacts, as shown in the attached cropped screenshot.

These show in both Metacity and compiz, and do not go away if I shift to another

But they do go away if I "select" an area of the background by sweeping out a
rectangle with the mouse.

[Sorry if this is filed against the wrong package.  Was my best guess....]

Matej, can you reassign this to a more suitable component?
I'm not sure where to send it.
Comment 3 Tom London 2008-06-13 10:39:20 EDT
This seems to be gone with today's Rawhide updates.
