Question Nvidia 260.19.21 Driver = Rough Desktop

I just upgraded drivers and my desktop looks a mess. I have read there are issues with this driver but I have not seen this.

I am Running Linux Mint and have a GTS 450 Video Card.

Any Ideas ?

Well call me Ishmael but it looks okay to me, except for the transparent terminal.

The Theme (icons / color scheme) is not applied and all the edges are rough. I tried turning off all the compiz effects and it went back to normal........

Maybe it is a Compiz issue and not the driver.....

Any ideas....
