(well, maybe 10) after starting the X server. I am using the latest drivers.
I did not notice this behavior in 15xx drivers, and did send a message to
nvidia linux bugs mailing address, but never received a reply.

always happening after the first minutes, but is really visible only if the
there is something with high-contrast on the right hand of the screen.
