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

2.Login as any user on Fedora 10
3.Change the default screen resolution(1024x768) to 1280x800 and save it.
4.Now, again change the resolution from 1280x800 to 1024x768.
The Gnome Panel distorts.(Please notice the attached screen shot and also /var/log/Xorg.0.log file)

The Gnome-terminal distortion screehshot
I have noticed the same, Dell Latitude D520 with an "Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)" (according to lspci).
Most common case is when having used a projector - reducing the resolution of LVDS (normal 1400x1050) to 1024x768, or 800x600 to use a projector works fine,
but when increasing it, something goes wrong with both gnome-panel and gnome-screensaver, as shown in attached file. The screensaver then only covers part of the screen, the rest of the open windows etc. is shown (typical situation: I have used a projector at a meting or a lecture, and when it is done, i close the laptop (turning on the screensaver), disconnect it, and carry it to my office. When I then turn it back on, 2/3rds of the screen is covered with the screensaver password dialog, and along the lower and left border I can see my desktops and any programs that might be there).
It also sometimes happen that it changes resolution back to the "normal one" withot me doing anything. Is this a feature? Same problem also happens.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '10'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
