I had the problem on Retro and on GANT.  Again, I am using a fresh install
of FC6 with all updates applied. (AMD64 3500+ DualCH DDR400) I tried a few
different things and got both themes to operate properly with a few
changes.  It didn't seem like any one of these fixed it alone, but the
combination helped.  I get some fragmenting on the frontend when I 'zip'
through the menus quickly, but it refreshes with a press of the remote.  Not
nearly as bad as the previous effect.

1.) I updated my nvidia-settings with the latest control panel (9746).  I
had been using setting from as early as the 7xxx series without ever
changing my setttings.

2.) I switched to Livna Nvidia drivers because I was getting X errors with
the Atrpms drivers.

3.) I disabled all sync to V options within the nvidia settings and

4.) I enabled suid as root on mythfrontend to hopefully enhance performance.

5.) And finally, I test glxgears to make sure that my Nvidia libs were
handling OpenGL.
