NVIDIA + LCD problem in Fedora Core 3

Thank you for your attention. So here is a deal.

When I've changed my good-old Samsung SyncMaster 700IFT for brand new LG FLATRON L1730B I've noticed one strange thing. Whenever I start an application there is a yellow line one pixel wide appears along right side of the screen (the last column of pixels on the monitor to be precise). Closing that *any* application and starting it again or just clicking on the visible part of the desktop solves that problem. But what a hall - in Windows being in the same 60 Hz I have not got this issue... Iv'e tried the latest NVIDIA drivers from their web-site and previously used with my old monitor - the same thing.

Tried to switch to 75 Hz but it didn't solve the problem.

Anyone has an idea on this issue?

Thank you all in advance...

I have no idea but I'll just post to say I've experienced this as well. I am using a widescreen Dell LCDTV (Dell W1700) and am currently having issues adjusting my screen resolution, but I have definitly noticed this problem as well.

This problem is not limited to LCD screens. I have it on a CRT screen. Is this problem there only with NVIDIA drivers? Or is it a feature / bug in fedora core 3 ( wich I am using)?

I have this problem too on a dell 17" LCD. The line appears to be right outside the viewable area on the screen area. I adjusted the screen one more pixel to the right and it didn't show anymore. It looks like that at least on my monitor, there is one extra row of pixels.
