i've got a strange problem: when zooming images in the GIMP (2.8.2,
installed from archlinux [extra]), viewing them larger than the size they
are being automatically zoomed to by default, they break up into
unconnected, rectangular tiles.
moving (panning) them around with the mouse so that they partially leave
the screen brings those parts back to be displayed properly. means i have
to 'swivel' the image across all borders to get it to display properly.
in addition, applying scissors or path tool leaves artefacts on the image
that can be removed the same way.
i've noticed this first with the development version of GIMP (2.9,
compiled from GIT) and thought those were the new GIMP's growing pains --
but then i noticed the same happening with the stable version (2.8).
i've tried switching to an earlier version of xf86-video-ati and to an
earlier kernel, but neither rectifies the problem. i also tried different
options in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ 20-radeon.conf, whith the same result,
seems to have something to do with the image being refreshed, or not being
refreshed, but which part of the system is at fault baffles me.
i'm using arch +testing, and here are my system's details:
