    Can anyone confirm this for me. I updated to 10.5.7 and it runs quite well however I noticed a flaw of video flashing and I wanted to confirm this with others. In Stacks I use the Applications folder in list view. I have a long list of applications so I always have to scroll to go through all of them. When I use two finger scrolling to zip through them I see flashes of video artifacts while two finger scrolling. This only happens when you have enough apps in list view to require scrolling to see them all. For example, with no windows open I click the Applications folder and begin rapidly two finger scrolling through list view and I can see artifacts of the desktop flashing within the list view box. Anyone else notice this after the update? I have already reformatted and installed nothing but my basic apps and still see this.
    Apple mentioned that they updated the Nvidia drivers for the unibody Macs. I have a Macbook Air.

    No, it doesn't lag or anything but it flashes parts of the background while scrolling.

    Check out this YouTube video

    Here's what I was talking about. I don't think the forum was understanding me too well. This is the video artifact that I experience with my Macbook after the 10.5.7 update. It happens when you rapidly scroll using two finger scrolling while in Stacks list view or even the forum jump button list. Scrolling with one finger does nothing. If you rapidly scroll with two fingers you will see parts of the window or desktop flashing from behind. This did not happen in any version prior to the 10.5.7 update. Please confirm this on your notebooks with the new Nvidia graphics. Apple updated the Nvidia GPU drivers and I believe this affected it. You have to have enough applications in the list to require it to scroll. Check out the YouTube video someone posted.

    Yes it does the same thing on my mba rev b.
    I dont naturally use list view or application folder on my dock so Im not sure whether it happened with 10.5.7 or not.
