Default black or empty windows on 185.18.14 with many open windows


After some uptime with about 12 other windows open any graphics intensive application (e.g. gimp, acrobat reader) will either start with a black window or come up seemingly ok, but appear to be non responsive. Reducing the windows size will redraw the content and show that the application actually did respond, but the window refresh did not make to it to the screen.

Through the 180 and 185 series this has always been a problem for me. Sometimes it took more windows, but with 185.18.14 it has gotten especially bad.

edit: I'm currently running 2.6.30-rc, but the same problem occurs with official 2.6.28 Ubuntu Jaunty kernels.

bug report attached.
