Video card is- XFX pvt86syhlg geforce 8400 gs 512M
CPU is- AMD Phenom II X4 955 black 3.2G
There are no proprietary video driver installed.
Running gDESKLETS & had some video issues with the latest version at first. Uninstalled but didn't seem to help, may have left something though.
All works well until I open Fldigi & choose "op mode" or open any Open Office spread sheet. Once I've had this wrap, if I try to run YOUTUBE full screen, I get the wrapping there, too.
I can max the app & that will put the screen back, but it takes a log out & back in to actually clear the wrapping affect. (which is the only thing that "fixes" the youtube) In some areas, a mouse over will display the proper image for that area.
It appears that this bug report has laid dormant for quite a while. Sorry we haven't gotten to it. Since we fix bugs all the time, chances are pretty good that your issue has been fixed with the latest software. Please give it a shot. (Linux kernel 3.10.7, xf86-video-nouveau 1.0.9, mesa 9.1.6, or their git versions.) If upgrading to the latest isn't an option for you, your distro's bugzilla is probably the right destination for your bug report.
In an effort to clean up our bug list, we're pre-emptively closing all bugs that haven't seen updates since 2011. If the original issue remains, please make sure to provide fresh info, see http://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/Bugs/ for what we need to see, and re-open this one.
