Check out desktop effects settings (assuming they are on), but it sounds
more like a graphics problem of some sort, as the shadows aren't supposed
to flash, just add a drop-shadow to windows. the tails I don't quite
understand what you are seeing. A link to an image of what you are seeing
would be helpful here, I think.
