Default screen flickers

I hoped that with this release it would be fixed but it is not.
Here i go again.

Since the 3-4 most recent releases there's a problem when i load anything GL related.
The screen starts to flicker, and may even go black.

I have tested this with several distros (fc1,fc2,fc3) with 2.4 and 2.6 kernels.

here's the specs:

p4 3.0ghz
msi geforce fx 5600 (128mb)
Dell P1130 screen

any feedback would be greatly apprechiated.

try posting xorg.conf, and any error messages you have, nobody can help you if you dont give them a point of reference, or any other information to go by.

there have been previous threads about this with NO answer at all.
i get no errors whatsoever. it's a driver glitch.

yea, i get it too, but surprisingly i only notice it with targetware and in that program i get it a lot (about once every minute), basically i get big white triangles just pop up for one frame, and its not a game bug because the exact same version of the game worked perfect with the old drivers

3.3Ghz p4
geforce 6600 AGP
slack-current
2.6.11.5 kernel (happened with the 2.6.10 too)
