Default Re: [amd64/8.2-RELEASE/GTX 295] artefacts and hangers hangers while playing flash vid

It seems, that only non white colors are 'transmitted' in other windows. For me, most times all is ok again after closing the browser windows which contains the flash contents.

This is with a GeForce GTS450 on FreeBSD 9.0-CURRENT (amd64), nvidia-driver-270.41.19 from the ports, 'windowmaker' as window manager and linux-f10-flashplugin-10.3r181.26.

After changing from www/linux-f10-flashplugin10 to www/linux-f10-flashplugin11 there is nothing like the described artifacts and damaged workspaces anymore. Sorry for suspecting the NVidia driver for this.

Actually working with a GeForce GTS450 on FreeBSD 10.0-CURRENT (amd64), nvidia-driver-285.05.09 from the ports and linux-f10-flashplugin-11.0r1.152.
