Output on screen garbled

After a new install of Mythtv 0.21 on my Gentoo Box Screenoutput of mythtv-setup and mythfrontend is garbled (see screenshot).

I installed a complete new box with actual packages, Xorg 1.5.3 and ATI drivers. In a former installation that worked. Is there a workaround?

I also tried out the actual Mythtv trunk. Ther's no such a problem.

I think this is a pretty-well-known bug in the ATI drivers that affects all Qt(3?) apps. Pretty sure you just have to run Myth GUI programs with:

export LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=true mythtv-setup

You're right. Now it works correct.

Driver bug, not a mythtv one.
