So, the problem doesn't happen with an older nvidia driver (358), and
i wanted to try again with a more recent driver (367) and the released
E-21 (previously i had been using the beta E-21).

I had the exact same problem... So i tried the above suggestion. After
digging through the configure options for the various libraries and a
few false starts, i found you have to add:
   --enable-egl --with-opengl=es
to the configure options for efl. I then recompiled elementary and
enlightenment to be on the safe side and it works! Window contents are
back, using the newer driver.

Quick question, though: What possible consequences are there from
switching to egl? Besides the obvious, that it works while gl didn't
:) Specifcally, setting the above opengl option to "es" instead of the
default "full"?
