Default Re: (II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized GPU GART. Error

I noticed a few things:
- the plasma "desktop folder" widget seem to have the "polka-dot" problem along the edges.
- Resizing either the Task Manager bar or the plasma widget seems to change the corruption pattern, almost removing all corruption. When resizing to the initial geometry (when the corruption first occoured) the corruption returns as if the corruption is remembered in memory. When resizing the Task Manager bar the corruption disappeared except on the edges or the temp. "speedometers".

Could this be a sign of bad/broken video memory or is it driver and/or KDE 4.2.2 related?
