I wondered. I was about to test the nVidia driver again tomorrow.
The reason I made the switch was that fonts in Thunderbird were
displayed as unduly small - not very small but smaller than they should
display. When I use the Vesa driver, the fonts in Thunderbird look right.
I'm using the Vesa driver on PCLinuxOS 0.93 because the Vesa driver gets
all fonts out of proportion - they become unduly large and it becomes
very difficult to adjust fonts so that all windows of all applications
are in proportion and fit happily within the screen.
I am not having the rippling effect with Vesa on PCLinuxOS, so I am
guessing there has been some change in the Vesa driver from PCLOS 0.93
to KateOS 3.2.
