Description of problem:
This is not the same as bug #590216. I have installed that new driver version and my problem still appears.
At startup everything is fine but after a while icons get randomly corrupted. I have also seen image corruptions for the cover images in amarok. If the application does a redraw then the image appears OK again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller : nVidia Corporation G94 [GeForce 9800M GTS] [10de:062c] (rev a1)

Oops, too much copy & paste. That is of course kernel:
Linux baraddur 22.214.171.124-85.fc13.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu May 6 18:09:49 UTC 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Just seen your comment on the recent update. Is the problem still identical to before?
Yes, no changes. I had hoped that the problem would be fixed after reading the changelog of the latest driver update...
The new kernel-126.96.36.199-34.fc13.x86_64 with the fix for bug #602956 doesn't help. Icons are still corrupted :-/
Just preupgraded the machine to F14Beta and still have the same issue.
I'm not sure if it'll help, but the kernel that's building now has an additional fix for a corruption issue I managed to track down finally:
Sorry for the late reply, but I wanted to check the new kernel a little bit longer. I haven't seen any icon corruptions with 188.8.131.52-37.fc14.x86_64 for two days, so I assume the issue is fixed.
Ah, excellent :) Thanks for letting me know. That was a pain to track down, I couldn't reproduce it in normal circumstances at all, had to resort to some tricks. Glad it's good now though!
of course, we need kernel team to submit this or a later build as an update to make sure the fix makes F14.
This has been fixed. Closing.
