Will try to downgrade to .68 and see if it persists, but I think it is KDE problem (if I get same thing on radeon with OSS drivers...)
Again, I don't get any graphical corruption like in those screenshots, windows just stop updating till I min/max them (and I have to do it each time I want it to update). Any other action shows no update, even clicking on menus, buttons or other objects, though the actions do happen menus do open, you just can't see them open.

This sounds similar to the issue I am experiencing. But, for me, the windows are rerendered by clicks, or other actions. I use gnome/compiz when this happens. Still, the problems might be related.

Installed .68 - my issue is still present, so it's not nvidia fault (at least for my issue).

Problem with fedora 9, kde 4.1.1, x86_64 and openoffice. The menus and toolbar elements disappear with these drivers.

Does this driver fix the memory leak?

I don't think so. It might be better, but with the other bug I've been seeing I've had to disable GL compositing, so I don't get the leak any more, or at least its not as bad... X still seems to be using a lot of ram for being in plain 2d mode though 619Virt, 217Res. (gfx card only has 320MB to map, so theres still 100MB+ virt unaccounted for)

One thing that the last non-Beta release (173.14.12) would do that the subsequent releases wouldn't is hang up if you tried to switch between workspaces via compiz after changing the number of monitors attached to the system, but the gnome-terminal bug in those fixed releases kept me from using it. When I get home I'll verify it's also fixed here, too.

Your bug report has no output for `nvidia-settings -q all`. Have you installed it and followed these performance tweaks yet?

Upgraded from 177.70, and suddenly kwin compositing is quite sluggish on my 9800 gt.

Angry Re: 177.76 OUT !!

This driver is a disaster on my machine.
(Kernel 2.6.22.6, 8500 GT)

With 177.70: glxgears did 6050 fps, gtkperf did 59.96 s.
With 177.76: glxgears did 2110 fps, gtkperf did 96.56 s.

(On a 2.6.25.17 kernel gtkperf was even slower, 104 s)
With all the performance tweaks enabled.

Not too promising

NVIDIA really needs a public bug tracking system. These forums are too disorganised.
