[pkg-nvidia-devel] Bug#540345: residual images shown after logging in with kdm

Package: nvidia-glx
Version: 185.18.14-2
Severity: minor


If using kdm immediately after logging in, but before the WM/DE takes 
over (happens also during the splash screen of Xfce) there are lots of 
pieces of images/text from previous sessions shown on the screen. This 
happens also if I do a reboot!

If I use the 'nv' driver I just get a black background instead.

P.S. Maybe the severity should be a bit higher due to privacy concerns
