Mathematica 5.2 redraw errors with X and nvidia graphics card
I've recently moved from Fedore Core 4 to Ubuntu linux, in the process moving from Xorg 7.1.1 from Xorg 6.9 (ish). In this new setup, I'm now having severe problems with redraw errors with Mathematica 5.2.0. I'm unable to scrollback in the notebook windows (by dragging the window sidebar up) when using the hardware acclerated nvidia driver - doing so seems to cause a window redraw error. Scrolling down is fine. Triggering a redraw by hiding/exposing the window or by switching workspaces corrects the graphics state. I'm using nvidia-glx 8774, BTW. This problem does not occur with the unaccelerated nv driver or using Xnest, and was not seen on the Fedora Xorg 6.X setup on the same machine. Needless to say, this is intensely annoying ! Has anyone else had similar problems, and any ideas on a fix ? Many thanks.
