Exclamation Graphic Glitches in the the new driver 275.09.07

NVIDIA Driver Version: 275.09.07

Operating System: Fedora (14) - Linux-x86_64
Kernel: 2.6.35.13-91.fc14.x86_64
Desktop Environment: GNOME 2.32.0.2
Graphics Card: GEFORCE GTX 260M (1GB)

Problems:
After I updated from (270.41.19) to (275.09.07) I started getting some erroneous pixels around Tool-tips, Drop Down Boxes, when I right click, when I switch work spaces, etc...:

Here are some screenshots:

When Right Clicing on the desktop: (Notice the white pixels around the context menu)


The other controls face similar problems so one screenshot will do. What should I do? Revert back to the old driver or wait for NVIDIA to fix these issues? Or is there a workaround to fix this problems?

Don't use compiz.

Same issue here without compiz.

Card 9400GT 512Mb

Looks like some parts of the screen are not drawed (in systray and menu bar, uses to show chunks of wallpaper)

For me disabling compiz didn't fix the problem, I ended up downgrading back to 270.41.19
