    11.04 White Menu Flickering

    Hello guys, Am I the only one experiencing a kind of white flicker in all menus in 11.04.

    Check out the video:
    LINK TO VIDEO

    It maybe a bit exaggerated in the video, but still noticeable in real life.

    I think i have all drivers installed since its running unity 3d, flash is running smoothly and so on. Anybody else see this? How do I test if all settings are OK?

    Bug seems to be reported here also:

    I can confirm this problem. I noticed it in beta but thought it would get worked out by the stable release.
    As for a solution, I'm not sure.

    I was going to ask the same question if I couldn't find anyone else posting about this. I was just curious as to whether it was my system or just a little bug. I'm sure it'll be worked out soon. :-]

    Although close and probably related, its not exactly the same bug, i don't get the white flashing global menu. Only for the menu panels themselves, and the indicator menus. Especially when switching quick between them.

    Although I think I found a reported bug, matching the behaviour much closer =)

    Wasn't like this in Gnome, so probably related to Unity and not Compiz... Definately takes away from any premium feel that Canonical is setting out to achieve =/.. Apple or MS wouldn't allow something like this (Don't hate , just sayin!).

    I have a question to all readers! Is there anyone that does NOT experience this flickering? If not, then tell us your setup.

    Post a video on how it looks, im curious on how it should be =)

    I've yet to see a machine without this flicker.
