Just thought I should confirm that reducing the display resolution so I
could increase the depth to 24 bits made the vertical stripes go away.

Probably shouldn't have been a surprise that the latest and greatest
"eye candy" window managers would require a minimum depth of 24 bits to
work properly.  That being said, 16-bit depth used to work just fine
with KDE4, so I confess to being annoyed at having to give up desktop
real estate just to get things working again.  Bug?  Feature?  I don't
suppose it matters all that much except to those of us trying to keep
our older vintage hardware running.

The above request for video card recommendations still stands.  Thanks
in advance!
