Default Annoying image anomaly (similar to tearing)

Ubuntu 10.10

The 2 nvidia packages I have installed are

nvidia-current 270.41.06-0ubuntu1
nvidia-common 0.2.30

no nvidia-settings


This issue is more than likely due to a fairly recent update of the driver. I'm seeing the problem on all video ouput (mplayer, Flash plugin) regardless of type. 1080p50 (native) shows the issue much more than 1080p60 but is visible on both.

It looks like tearing but can only be described as a flickering box section of the image that is displaced. The box appears about a third of the way down the screen and is about 50pixels or so tall, extending 2/3 to the full width of the image. Is visible during movement.

Any help troubleshooting this would be appreciated.
