Please see screenshot, my display retains a section from an youtube
video played hours ago, and displays it on dark pixels. I call it
tainted display, as I don't know what else to call it,


I've seen this before once at least; a reboot, or restart of X did clear it.

Has anyone else seen this? What causes this? Any idea how I can clear
it w/o having to restart X or a reboot?
