Periodically the window(s) will not re-paint properly. Page may be viewed by
resizing window or sliding scrollbar.  Clicking on a link will load the next
page, but window won't display it without further jiggering.  Persists with both
new windows and new tabs.

Problem remains between sessions.  Clearing the cache does not remedy.  Occurs
in mail client as well.   Does not go away until soft reset.

Has been observed in versions 1.3 and 1.4 as well.

Has occurred with Radeon 8500, 9000, and 9700 versions in 1600x1200 dual-head
mode (i.e. 3200x1200.  Also in 1024x768.  Has persisted over multiple driver
updates, and on 3 different mobo chipsets (KT266, KT266a, TigerMP).

Have not seen it on Matrox G500 in similar mode.  Not related to temperature of
system/video chipset.

Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Appears to occur randomly

Feel free to contact me for further discussion.  I manage a network which
includes over 100 Windows workstations of various ages, with a wide assortment
of video cards and display modes (about 1/3 are some sort of dual-head).

Have been using Mozilla as the primary element in a 2-year campaign to break the
IE habit among a group of corporate investors with some success.

More than happy to speak in person if things aren't too crazy.  My direct number
is 203/351-2833.  As my company also develops software, and my supervisors
appreciate the security benefits of Mozilla over IE, there is no issue with me
contributing time and knowledge during work hours.

BIG fan since 1.0.  Feeling guilty for not reporting this 9 months ago.

Is it something similar with what is reported in bug 220040? (see the attached
image there)
That was marked as duplicate of bug 205893.
