radeon 9800 kaboodle display corruption

I'm using Slack 9.1, and I've got an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro installed, using the latest fgrlx drivers from the ATI website.

That being said, I've got a strange problem- when I view a movie in kaboodle, the window graphics get corrupted in the top area of the kaboodle window itself (not the video area, thankfully), and in other windows' (konqueror) top area. When I say top area, I mean, typically, the File-Edit-View Bar, and the window title area above it. When I say corrupted, I mean green rectangular blotches. That's about as well as I can describe it. The effect is exacerbated for the konqueror window if I drag the kaboodle window over it (as the movie plays). I think (hope) with that description, one could sort of imagine it.

Now, this is more of an annoyance than a true problem, and it doesn't happen with any other video player (I've tried xine). I can live with it, but if anyone's got any ideas (agp problem, kaboodle problem, ati problem), I would rather get rid of it.
