Description of problem:
Please see the attached picture
This is probably e regression since it didn't happen before upgrading.
Also this does not happen on all of my computers. Only on some.

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

How reproducible:
It happens on any application and is reproducible
constantly, but only some computers.
Something external may be triggering the bug.
(I can give access to one of them if necessary)

I think this bug can be closed.
The problem was reported on lauchpad (ubuntu) and apparently the cause is some bug in the NVidia binary blob.

For those interested, there's a fix in the wine faq.

Note to self: "check the FAQ first" applies to you too!!!

Thanks for reporting back. Really seems like an nvidia issue.
