    When i scroll in safari the contents in the window become slightly distorted creating a ripple or wave like effect in the middle of the page.

    I've read several reports from as much as a year and half ago about this issue, but haven't been able to find out whether its been resolved. Apple has a support doc from 2007 that describes the problem but offers no solution: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=86823

    I'm running 10.5.2 ... and i've only seen the problem on macbook pros, but the apple support doc implies that it's an os x issue with ATI video cards.

    Does 10.5.4 fix the problem?
    Has any solution been found?

    I used to have that problem when running solely on battery power. Since I updated to 10.5.4 it has never happened.

    Interesting.
    Whether i'm on battery or plugged in makes no difference. The ripples are always there.

    Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

    I did encounter in both 10.5.2-3 but not so far on 10.5.4 either on battery or ac.

    great news.
    I might make the jump to 5.4 now.

    (i was sticking with 10.5.2 because it ran much cooler than 10.5.3 on the several MBPs i've had.)

    I see it consistently on my 24" iMac 2.8GHz with NVIDIA 8800.

    I have sometimes similar symptoms with my Late 08 Mpb. Firstly I saw it in Open Office. I thought that it was a software issue as I didn't have the problem with other apps. Recently I got it in Safari. Odd enough not in all pages. But in one tab of yahoo's main page. Oddly enough I got the problem only in yahoo's pages. I was connected with airport to a cafe's open connection. Might that be a problem? Becasue with ethernet connection the yahoo page seems alright.
