        An example is at:

        Note that the 'Tools' on the menu bar has been garbled, as has
        part of the webpage.

        Has anyone else seem anything similar?

Under a desktop with an ATI radeon card I had some corruption with native
firefox 3, but which only happened under some specific pages/tabs, so it
seemed like a gecko bug to me...  I've not had any such problem with
firefox 2 however.  No idea if this is related or not to your problem
though.  The type of corruption I observed appeared different too.

        Interesting - I can reproduce it on firefox2 and thunderbird
        on this system but not on openoffice (for example). Did you
        see your issues on xen or straight i386? Were you using
        a radeon or radeonhd driver? Thanks
