Subject Re: redraw problem in safari 4 ?
Date Fri, 24 Apr 2009 10:46:39 GMT
Just tested with this version on IE7, winxp and JRE version 1.6.0_07
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM, see attached screenshot. You'll see some
white horizontal and vertical stripes, they  appear on parts that were
moved outside of the visible screen area, then brought back.
