KDE Black screen on Maximize


I'm running Slackware 13.37 64bit on an HP 2945 Laptop. KDE 4.5.5. I have a NVIDIA driver installed (270.41.06) and running KDE at 1200 x 800.

I've upgraded to 13.37 about 2 months ago. I started noticing an issue with the windows in KDE pretty much upon start up. If I have multiple windows open and try to maximize a window or drag a corner of the window to a large size, the screen within the windows goes black. Also any menu in the windows goes black. If I resize back down the issue goes away. Or as stated before, if I have only one window open the problem doesn't exist.

In short, I'm trying to tell if this is a common problem or if anyone has found a solution to the issue.

Thanks in advance
Ace

I don't have this problem on the machine with the nvidia card (currently on 270.41.19), but I have similar issues on all the machines with intel graphics (i915 driver, misc. chips): I need to toggle desktop effects after boot (eg. press Shift-Alt-F12 twice) to make everything work properly.

Cool, I'll try it. Thanks. It would be a small work around if it works
