Same thing here. That graphics card doesn't support proper hardware
acceleration, and the driver even less. I'm using XRender with relatively few
artifacts/glitches and can only suggest you do the same - OGL seems to be
broken badly, probably due to the driver's low quality.
There may be some corrupt graphics after a suspend-to-RAM. I haven't found a
way to get rid of them except a reboot. Switching off desktop effects does not
have any effect on this.
