Some of the older catalysts, 9.2 or later IIRC had a screen corruption problem, but it was fixed in 9.4? 9.5?
Since 9.5? or 9.6? I've now gotten a new type of corruption where random rectangles (primarily on applications) will have black backgrounds which forcing a screen refresh "fixes". Dunno if that's a GNOME/GTK/X.org problem, a catalyst problem, or a combo of the two. (Other users have reported this as well, so it's not hw.)
