Re: 180.08 & red checkerboard
it's a bit inconsistent if one opens and closes amarok/kaffeine a few times but on a clean boot, there are flashes only when amarok has been started.
i've updated to 180.29 and i also checked if it was only with the packman version of amarok - it isn't.
it is worth checking if the problem is there when amarok is using a different plugin (eg yauap/gstreamer). maybe the problem is with the amarok-xine package
