    Create a new account and see if they issues exists with that too. Could be just a graphical glitch

    My guess is that you're running a MacBook with X3100 Intel graphics, the driver for this under 10.6 is either broken or extremely buggy. You can fix it (quick fix) by changing the screen resolution to something else, and then back to native. The problem you're encountering is usually triggered by Safari and the QTkitserver or something along those lines. So I suggest you stop using Safari for the time being, a nuisance, I know. 10.6.4 promises to fix some OpenGL and graphics driver problems, so maybe it will be rectified.
