Default graphical corruption with 180.X series drivers

With every version of the 180.X series drivers I see on my machines graphical corruption consisting of a black line with text from another window appearing and disappearing seemingly at random on the screen.

Whatever the text is the corruption can be see and captured with a screen grab program (the attached image was taken with ksnapshot. - It's a thunderbird mail listing which out of the blue had a black box with 'Campbell Taylor-' written on it appear on the corner of it. (Campbell is a person who sent me email higher up the listing of email.) This is very typical of the corruption I'm seeing, lines of text just randomly turn up in other locations on windows and on other windows.)

The 180.37 driver seems slightly better so far - it took 3 days for the corruption to turn up this time, with previous releases it's normally within 10 minutes.

None of these corruption problems occurs with 177.82 or earlier drivers. I've tried testing earlier and later x servers on my machine with no change - 177.82 no corruption, 180.X video corruption.

Yes, I also have this on my GeForce Go 7300 even with 180.37.
