    Do these graphical bugs look familiar to any of you all? Note that the blued out names on Facebook are intentional, but the half displayed picture is not.

    What about without gfxCardStatus?

    There's another thread suggesting it introduces graphical glitches.

    Yeah, just turned it off and still had issues. I also get weird tearing in Facebook Chat when the spell check tries to join the party.

    For me, i solved it by turning off "launch at startup" for the gfxcardstatus, it seems to clash with apples graphic settings when it auto launches upon login and would cause the tearing. When the tearing happens, the only way to get rid of it is to reboot. Now i only turn on gfxcardstatus after i boot into desktop, haven't had the tearing problem since then.
