    I've been having this problem for a little while, getting artefacts in different areas, all during scrolling. In the screenshot you'll see the worst of it in stacks, but it happens in Adium frequently when scrolling through a chat or contact list.

    This was the beginning of the problem I had with my iMac right before it bit the dust. I'm afraid of it escalating, guys; I need some advice.

    What model is your MBP? Does it have the 8600GT in it?

    Unibody Macbook Pro with the dual graphic cards (9400M / 9600M). Problem occurs under the 9400, haven't tried with the 9600.

    Two more examples. Not too hard to get them since it happens so frequently... just a matter of getting the right frame.

    Well as it says in the other thread, if you can see the problem in a screenshot it's not a hardware graphics failure. It's something in the software.

    This is the main reason I have minimum 3rd party software installed. The chances for glitching triple when someone uses a lot of 3rd party hacks/software. :rolleyes:

    My only suggestion is try uninstalling the software? :confused:

    If you don't mind me asking what icon set are you using and what are you using to display your currently playing song at the top of the screen? :D

    Looks slick.
