Just to validate your experience, I have the exact same problem with my nVidia GeForce 5300 card. Never found a way around it. I just got in the habit of clicking quickly to make it go away.

*%#(*&^!)(*&$ nothing more to say exept it's not about nVidia I have ATI.... tonight I'll test the Gnome 2.10 to see how's the behaviour about that yellow %&%$&

ATI here, same problem....Time for Bugzilla maybe? ;) Just for info. It used to do the same thing to me in WinXP when it was first released.

Actually I was thinking about it just have to find time to make acc and post at Gnome bugzilla... still haven't tried 2.10 but in an hour or so..

I get a vertical 1 pixel width line on the rightmost part of my screen after upgrading to FC3 ( I waited to upgrade my system until most of the video bugs were worked out... :D ) when ever I open a new window, terminal for instance, but only if i start them from the Dock.... very weird..

If I click it it goes away.
