    I'm in this boat as well, but it's not even with mission control being open. It seems to happen on Chrome when I have a couple tabs open that have a lot going on, but Chrome will freeze for a second or two and then the top of the window gets all fritzed out. Looks like colored TV static. A quick hide and re-open fixes it, but I can't tell if it's something I can actually fix, or just a symptom of the problematic 2011 MBP graphics cards.

    Stop using Chrome? ;) It is a resource hog, particularly when it comes to battery life.

    Chrome does seem to be the only app that has this issue, so, not really a Mac problem, IMO. Submit a bug report with Google?

    One hack is to have more than one tab open: that seems to get rid of the line. And for some reason, having iTunes up stops Chrome from showing the line.
