I'm also affected by this bug also with a ATI Radeon Mobility 7500. I'm running Karmic though.

I'm using notify-osd 0.9.24-0ubuntu1

This is a known issue with that combination of HW and software. Mirco can you please comment on the configuration change to use to resolve the issue?

I'm going to mark the Lucid task as Won't Fix (since I opened the bug). RenderAccel is now disabled in upstream radeon sources when using XAA and Lucid no longer suffers from this bug.

status: Triaged → Won't Fix
