I'm seeing this too. Again, nVidia driver (8774 I think). Next to no CPU
usage. I'm using the MythCenter theme normally, but thought I'd take a look
at GANT to see this flashing background logo it's now got. Switched straight
back since the fades were so slow. Fades on MythCenter are silky smooth but
pretty slow/ugly on GANT.
