hello!

i've been experiencing some problems with JRE 1.5.0_08-b3. the graphics behind the mouse cursor seems to be corrupted when the mouse passes over. i have a screenshot at: http://tzhang.co.uk/Untitled.gif

does anyone have any explanation as to why this happens and a possible fix/work around?

this doesnt happen with intellij 5 which uses it's own JRE 1.5.0_07-b3.

there is a similar report on: http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=4915049 but this refers to JRE 1.2.x and i dont have to click my mouse to corrupt the graphics.

(i dont suppose this could be a mouse driver problem?)
thanks,
tian

I have seen a number of questions re graphical problems, solved
by reducing the PC's hardware acceleration.

worth a try - just remember to restore it if this doesn't work

hello!

thanks for your suggestion, but the problem in my case is not related to the graphics acceleration! i've disabled my mouse driver and confirmed my suspecions. indeed it seems that my synpatics touch pad (version 7.xx) seems to have been the culprit. after reinstalling an ealier version the problems seems to be gone away.


thanks,
tian.
