I'm using elementary OS, an Ubuntu derivate, on a IBM Thinkpad T40 with a ATI RV200/Mobility Radeon 7500 and a variety of graphical glitches occur during regular usage. I've reported the issues to the distribution team but they think it's a driver issue.
I've made a short video showing the glitches and extracted some screenshots. In the video you can see that the dock is invisible at first and that the menus at the top of the screen don't open. At about 1:50 I restart the window manager via ssh which then shows the dock and the menus at the top. Then I launch several applications to demonstrate the graphical glitches.
