Hi, I had a hard drive failure and am using Fedora 17 64-bit the same Nvidia hardware. the Garbling is slightly lesser although the problem exists. I think, after an hour of use or so, this issue increases?

and I tried scrolling through web pages which are images heavy. the problem is not showing up after running above command. I will update if the problem reappears.
Interestingly, I never faced the issue with Terminal(gnome-terminal) as many reports. For Me, Firefox,Image viewers like shotwell,eog shows image garbled or "stuck at middle" while scrolling. it is a lot lesser in Fedora than Debian possibly because it is using Gnome-Shell-3.4.
