Hi Alan,

Thanks for testing! Using latest graphics drivers is still important it seems.

Can you explain which graphics settings you changed exactly? It can't
see which ones are the default or have changed. Also, what does
turning off Intel GMA mean, is that also a setting in the drivers, or
uninstalling the driver?

I've seen this problem on with my Nvidia/Linux system as well now, so
it is probably bug in our code. However I haven't been able to redo
it, can't figure out the steps, simply saving does not do it.
