I recently upgraded from 11.3 to 11.4 using the “zypper dup”-method, because I have made good experiences with that approach with my last upgrade. However I have some strange visual artifacts throughout the system now. When a button is in its pushed state, then at the left and top edge, where normally a drop-shadow would be drawn, is a white bar, as shown in the picture below
This also applies to progress-bars (for example when starting eclipse but also for all other applications)
Also the systems feels slower than usual when switching between applications. Can’t tell if this is important, but I have a Nvidia Quadro NVS 160M graphics card with the latest driver (version 260.19.44).
Any help would be appreciated!
I can just confirm the problem. New clean installation of opensuse 11.4 x86-64, nVidia GeForce 9200M GS with proprietary drivers. The same problem, very annoying!

Same here on 11.3 with gnome 2.32 from the gnome stable repositorie and
But it doesn’t bother me too much.
I just changed the theme to gilouche :s
Actually changing the theme does not make any difference to me.
Ok, the patch is a great deal, but official. Any bug reports? If not, let post it. Ok?
There is a bug report, the link is somewhere on the other two posts about this problem. I mean if bugzilla.novel.com is the right place to post bugreports for openSUSE.
OK, here is the bugreport:
As pointed out in the Wiki it seems to be the right place…
Installing nvidia beta drivers fixed the problem. Not the best solution, of course, but working.
I’m actually not so sure if the bug-report mentioned above really describes the problem (it occurs for the KDE-desktop and shows other effects). Maybe inp3dance could file in a proper report as he already seems to know what the problem is.
