World of Warcraft Garbled Icons and Random Disappearance of Text

I'm using Fedora 10. Pretty much what the title says. If I run the game in DirectX mode, after a minute or so my whole system has a brainfart and I get a message saying my kernel had an oops, so I submit a report. So I've been running the game in OpenGL. The problem with that is, even though my fps is slightly higher, my spell icons look like garbage and all of the fonts disappear for some unknown reason after a period of time. I can deal with the lack of a hardware mouse, most of my targeting is done via the tab button anyway, but I've got to at least be able to see what my teammates are saying in BGs and tell what spell I'm clicking on. Below is a screenshot of what I'm seeing.

I apologise for posting without being able to offer any help man.

It's a while since I ran any games on Linux and wondered if you now had anti-aliasing, shader model 2.0 and all the graphical effects taken for granted in WIndows?
