Periodically, I've noticed that some web applications have these bizarre glitches. I believe it might be triggered by some CSS transforms, but I don't know for certain (it appears that most times when this happens, the sites use transforms). Presumably if it is a CSS transform issue, it likely uses hardware acceleration and I'm thinking it might be a graphics driver issue, but I have no clue where to begin fixing this.

I am running Google Chrome on a Dell E6410 on Loki 0.4.1. The graphics is NVIDIA Corporation GT218M [NVS 3100M] (rev a2). It usually goes away if I switch tabs and go back to it.

Here is an example: screenshot of glitch

What can I do to fix this?

Here is the output of lscpi for the graphics driver:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation GT218M [NVS 3100M] [10de:0a6c] (rev a2)
    Subsystem: Dell GT218M [NVS 3100M] [1028:040a]
    Kernel driver in use: nouveau
    Kernel modules: nvidiafb, nouveau
