    This seems more like a hiccup in the graphic sub system than with the memory, or why do you suspect the memory to be source of this problem?


    Has a restart or the repairing of permissions helped, or the reset of the SMC?

    Oh I was just guessing about the memory (not exactly a computer expert). restarting doesn't fix it. but I'll try your suggestions and see if it pops up.

    Do you have any kind of hacks or other system changing software installed?

    Do you still have warranty?

    And does it only happen with one application, or does it happen with more?

    And what Mac OS X version do you have?

    Hmmm no?? I have quicksilver, googlenotifier... no coolbook or anything like that. What do you mean hacks by the way?

    I still have warranty...

    I have 10.6.6 installed.
