It's the third time that this happened when i'm trying to slide a page into my dock. Look on the left side and the menu bar at the top of the picture.

The little color wheel spin for 20 sec. and everything go fine after!!

What's the problem?

looks like a graphics card glitch, has it only started happening after an update by any chance?

Did you just update to 10.5.5 ? I had some graphics issues when I updated my iMac to 10.5.5 it usually happened when I logged in.



I had to open dashboard for it all to go away. I have since updated with the stand alone updater and it seems to have fixed my problems.

You might try the stand alone updater.

I have the exact same problem after updating to 10.5.5. I'm trying to find the stand alone update file for 10.5.5 (to run the update again). Am I understanding this correct?
