Description Alex 2009-02-08 14:44:15 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.2.0)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages

Images from Compositing seem to stay in the graphic card RAM. If you logout and login again, and click on the splash-screen (so the splash goes away), you can see a mosaic of images and other screen parts from the previous session. It seems there is not possiblity to clear the Video-RAM to prevent this. This may be a privacy issue on shared systems, and its just unbeautiful for all others.

I'm using nvidia nonfree-driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.22-pkg2.run
