Question Pixel errors in pictures with ati drivers,

This is the first time I have pixel errors when using my setup in linux, have resently installed the debian squeeze rlz, with rglrx drivers from the debian wiki how to.

Now I have pixelerrors in pictures and they are static for the pictures aka, the pixels are static in the picture even if I move a webpage for instance.

Any buggreport on this? Or how to fix it, its hard to make a screendump but I could take a picture of the screen with a cam if someone like to see it

In win7 or ubuntu there is no indications of this problem.

You can usually take a screenshot - kde gnome, and iirc, gimp all have utilities. Also check the settings of HorizSync, VertRefresh, and aspect ratio in xorg.conf. Many stable patterns are possible from having these wrong.
