gnome-shell display garbled

gnome-shell (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

as shown in the attached screenshot. Also while pointing mouse at the top left corner, the screen flickers like crazy.

This does not happen with unity-3d on the same machine, also it seems that the ati driver has nothing to do with it (because after this problem I tried to install the restricted driver, same symptom).

This really looks like a duplicate of bug 838577. The fglrx drivers don't work well with GNOME Shell.
