Graphic Area Issues

Alright, woe and betide those that have been here.

I have experienced a spectrum of graphic issues since moving to 2008. There has been a consistent and somewhat reproduceable graphic area update issue since workign with 2008.

For myself, I tend to get the black background. I can resize my SolidWorks application and if I make the window small enough the background / graphic area goes from BLACK to the DSS SolidWorks graphic. After a little while though, I have to shrink the application down some more to restore the background image. Repeat, repeat, repeat until it stops working and I need to shutdown and restart SolidWorks.

I've gotten reports from our customers describing this and a similar issue, where the graphics area fails to update / updates in chunks and blocks, shows the desktop through the graphic area.

Oddly enough, the issue most pressing is coming from a user on SolidWorks 2007 SP 4 or 5

I've never experienced the issue in 2007.

Anyone with the black display / other applications display in the graphic area on minimize/restore operations?
