I installed several updates to Fedora 17 x86_64 yesterday, and upon rebooting today, my system is displaying horrendous graphical artifacts, rendering it unusable. I've attached a picture of one such example. The problem seems to be tied to Gnome 3, as rebooting Gnome will swap out the artifacts for a different set, and occasionally parts will render correctly (for instance in bringing up the overlay, I will briefly see an uncorrupted desktop).
This is not a hardware issue, as popping in my hard drive with Fedora 16 on it (I just upgraded a few weeks ago) works just fine.
Any ideas as to how to hunt down the source of this? My computer is out of action until I get this resolved, and I have no idea where to begin. I didn't see anything out of the ordinary in the xorg logs.
This is an HP laptop with an ATI card. Everything worked fine graphically prior to this update and reboot.

I've tried rolling back with yum and that did not resolve the issue, though it wasn't able to roll back all packages, so that is not necessarily surprising.

This issue was apparently caused by the update to kernel 3.5.0 Booting to 3.4.6 again resolved the issue. I guess I'll wait this one out and hope it's fixed in the next kernel update.
