Install any vte terminal (tested with lxterminal and terminal). If you try to resize the window, the display will get corrupted (black regions appear where the terminal is). This happens only on nvidia cards with the proprietary driver. I also tested on ati with xf86-video-ati and it doesn't happen.

Additional info:

Name : nvidia
Version : 270.41.19-1

Name : vte
Version : 0.28.0-1
This task depends upon

I'm seeing this too, but more importantly, if the original reporter could let upstream Nvidia guys know about this (or find out if they already do), it would be good.

I reported the bug here (sorry, the original URL is 4 lines long) with an attached screenshot. I think you need an account to see it.

We can close the bug here i guess.
