I hava a laptop with a video card ATI RC410 Radeon Xpres 200M.
When I log on, if I start mozilla first, the interior of the mozilla
window is corrupted(if I move the window the content is overlaping).
But if, after mozilla I start synaptic by example the corruption dissapears.
Desktop effects work fine after this.
Now I tested a little bit more and I can be more precise.
Is not enough to run synaptic, but I must search for something in order
for the corruption to disspear(when I search a new window appears).
Also there are application that are never corrupted like "System Monitor".
I also tryed to start a explorer, a terminal, a ubuntu help, a "Login
Window preferences" and all of these contain the same corruption until a
make a search in synaptic.
And now I tested even more, trying to open a few aplications that open
many windowses, but it seems that only synaptic can make this problem go
away, and it goes away only when I make a search. So there is not enough
to open the search window.
I also remarked that when I do the synaptic search the synaptic window
becomes darker for a few seconds.
Right after this the desktop effects start to work fine.
Any ideeas how can I fix this without running synaptic?
