I can't say -- this is just my personal experience. The two machines
that are affected are 32-bit with nVidia video cards and proprietary
drivers. The two that are not affected are using Intel video chips. I
think it only affects Gnome-Panel and Evolution -- so it's a pretty
selective bug to start with.

Again, I'm merely asking others whether this bug is selective as far
as video chips go pr not (I'm trying to find a pattern).. Don't not
come to any conclusions based on my four machines.
