A lot of resizing (vertically, but sometimes horizontally) redraws contents, but this is very annoying.

Is there a way to fix it?

Graphic card: 00:05.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C51 [GeForce Go 6100] (rev a2)

I'm using nvidia-current drivers (270.41.06-0ubuntu1).

What application(s) is/are doing that? –  RolandiXor May 1 '11 at 21:05
    
It happens to all applications (Banshee, google chrome, nautilus). –  Sayane May 1 '11 at 21:34
