I just wanted to say I also have this annoying issue of completely black title bar on the default terminal. I also have other graphical glitches, like the screen not refreshing completely (when background windows are brought to the forefront, the previous forefront window is not completely erased).
I'm running Hardy Heron 8.04 (Installed fresh last Thursday) xubuntu on a Thinkpad 600e.
My lspci shows the Neomagic 256AV.
How do I figure out if my video settings are correct? if my video drivers are installed correctly?
