I think your problem could be related to mine.

Yep, that describes what I'm getting too. However, switching to a TTY cleans things up for a second, then I have to do it again.

Dual independant displays is cool, but if I can't use it, I'll roll back to the 3123 drivers, thanks much!

well why shouldn't we submit a bug ? a friend of mine exhibits the same problems you and I see.

besides rolling back doesn't work here. can't roll back unless I also roll back the kernel here.

Looks alot like my problem. Looks like I'm going to roll back to the 3123 drivers until this issue is resolved. (I've yet to find information on how to direct the visuals on a DVD player for Linux to the other screen anyway.)

Arrow taskbar (KDE)

Hi folks,

I think my problem with GForce4 and TFT is the same as you have. I looked at the snapshot you put on the web. My display has quite the same problems with the kde taskbar.

What is the current state in solving this problem?

Ciao Jens.

still there are others who have the same problem....

Couple of things (this is the first time I've seen this thread):

1) You can roll back your driver. Just install the 3123 from tarballs, and it should work. You say you have 2.4.20 -- I assume that was installed from source? If so, the nVidia tarballs should work just fine.

2) linux-bugs@nvidia.com would be the bug-report address, as the README says.
