Repainting problems on desktop after upgrating to Natty
After upgrading to Natty I started to see that there are problems repainting the desktop.
As I work through the day, suddenly blocks of the screen are replaced by what it is the background picture, in other cases it is the border of a window that should be behind the one that is bring to first plane.
I started to use Unity and then switched to Ubuntu Classic to start discarding possible culprits. Currently I am running ubuntu classic.
I was running nvidia driver 275.09.07 when running Maverick, and have tried natty supplied driver as well with no difference at all. I
Currently I am running external nvidia driver 275.09.07 as the Ubuntu Additional drivers application failed to restore the previous driver.
I think this problem has been previously reported but I struggle to find similar bug reports.
