Thanks all - the tweak for the broken Ubuntu Radion Driver has worked
nicely. No longer do I have the green mess. In case anyone reads this in
the google archives the flaw is a faulty Radion Driver in Ubuntu 8.x and
before. Not sure if it is still an issue in 9.04.
The workaround is to add this line:
(xor-color (color-rgb 1.0 1.0 1.0))
To this file;
It is already commented too (doh!)
# Sets the color that is used for XOR drawing. This setting only exists
# workaround for buggy display drivers. If lines on the canvas are not
# correctly undrawn, try to set this to white. The color is specified
# form (color-rgb red green blue) with channel values as floats in the
# of 0.0 to 1.0.
