Comment 9 for bug 278471

My flickering also works like ibi's. Not vertical lines, but redrawings of parts of the screen.

An interesting fact: I recorded a video of the desktop using krecordmydesktop (frontend for recordmydesktop) and then I watched it in another computer (running Windows) and there is no flickering at the capture. recordmydesktop seems to receive the screen data before the monitor does, and somewhere between recordmydesktop and the monitor there's something wrong...

Hope that helps (in case any of the developers knows how recordmydesktop words, it could).
