Description monnier 2006-09-07 08:46:20 UTC
In text widgets such as this editing box (or the URL box) in firefox, the
erasure of the bar cursor is not done correctly when moving the cursor, leaving
annoying phantom cursors around.  Even the normal bar cursor is actually not
drawn correctly (rather than blinking ON/OFF it blinks "half-up/half-down").

This problem disappears if I specify the XaaNoSolidFillRect option in my
xorg.conf file.  I'm seeing this on a GeForce 6200 (TurboCache) chipset, with
version of the nv driver (from Debian testing).  I've also tried the
version 1.1.1 of the driver (from Debian experimental) and the problem seems to
still bepresent in that version as well.

Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys.  Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.

This should be fixed with xf86-video-nv-2.0.0.  Can you please give that version a try?
