Badly rendered window title-bar and desktop menu in KDE Plasma 4.6
Description of problem:
Using a new Thinkpad T420 with the Intel HD 3000 graphics card, 1600x900 display:
Pop-menus, the system's application menu, and window title bars are rendered badly, both with and without desktop effects enabled. This was confirmed using a full install as well as with the Fedora 15 Beta KDE Live CD.
With desktop effects turned off, the background of mis-rendered items comes out partially black. With effects turned on, they usually come out partially or entirely transparent. Both cases make menu items very difficult to read.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The latest KDE and intel driver as of filing this bug:
Right click on desktop to open desktop menu
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into KDE 4.6 Plasma
2. right click on the desktop to get menu
3. view menu with badly rendered background
