Ouch! Hope you'll get it fixed without hassle.

My MBP seems to be older than yours, with an ATi Radeon card, so I guess I'm safe.

Carlo, I also have this problem too, and my card is an ATI X1600 (late 2006 model). I think this is a problem with 10.6.2, because it was also a problem with older versions of Leopard (until they fixed it). Obviously the bug has come unstuck again (along with many other bugs- probably why Apple is taking so long to update to 10.6.3?).

I'm getting a spanking new Mac Mini in a couple of weeks time. Hooray!

My Mac mini is my main system and it's only two months old, so new as well. Despite the "mini" connotation, it is plenty powerful for everything I do including CPU hogging ChucK programs, even with only 2Gig of RAM. You'll enjoy your mini, Tom!

but Apple does not mention your video card (see my first post) so probably it is something else.
