Default Re: 180.08 & red checkerboard

In addition to the occasional red checks I will also get a full red screen flash during xv video playback. I use both compiz-fusion and smplayer/mplayer.

I have a EVGA 8600 GTS.
Same situation here. 177 would show a black checkerboard pattern on any video I was playing:
  • DVD Kaffeine: Xine engine
  • Electric Sheep screensaver

180.22 is giving me a red checkboard pattern, too. I don't get a fullscreen flash. Running KDE3 w/ Compiz-Fusion. Video card is a 9600GT.
