    I have no idea what's causing it. I had a feeling it was VLC, but the lines show up when it's closed. The lines aren't fixed, they move with the window. It's like the window shadowing thingy is broken.

    I've done the obvious, repair permissions, reboot. Any ideas?

    This is most odd. First thing I'd try is checking System Profiler. If Quartz is turned off for some reason, it'll show up there, and will give important clues as to what's going on. Also, check your Console logs. Looking at recent messages from the system and applications can also give useful clues. Also helpful is to do a filter of the console logs for key graphics-related words (graphics, window, quartz, and shadow all come to mind).

    Console logs are clean, and the problem seems to have corrected itself. I'll keep you guys updated if anyone is interested.
