Description Aleksander Demko 2003-06-25 21:55:58 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.7 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20030131

Description of problem:
Under RH9, the mouse cursor leaves behind a kind of delayed-redraw corruption
rectangle inside hardware rendered opengl applications.

Instead of tranperantly displaying the actual GL window under the cursor, it's
as if the previous under-the-cursor image is being draw - albeit too late. This
causes a bunch of mess to form around the cursor.

Please see the screen shot provided.

Hardware tested:
 - Matrox G400 32mb
 - NVidia TNT 16mb

Applications tested:
 - custom/interal GL apps
 - blender3d.org's Blender
 - glxgears
 - many small GL applications

No such corruption occurs if I force the application to use software GL (ie. set
LD_LIBRARY_PATH to use libraries from a freshly compiled MesaLib build). This
seems to point to something hardware related.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run any opengl based, in particular, those that run inside of a window
2. move cursor around the app redraws and renders its window

Actual Results:  Corruption.

Expected Results:  No corruption.

Additional info:

Xcursor thing, perhaps?

Same problem with i830 on IBMs R31


Option "SWCursor" "true" in XF86Config (Section Device)
