Video memory corruption

Had someone encounter video memory corruption (garbage on wallpaper and icons) after GLFW window was resized? It seems to be a problem on ATI Radeon 9600, WinXP, all Catalysts.

I have… I do not know what the reason is. I figured it was a bug in the ATI drivers that had to do with memory allocation problems in their GL driver. I stress tested a 9600 by uploading a ~1M poly object I think - Win XP too. After sizing the window, the mouse cursor was garbage, some desktop icons and window borders too, and the poly object was partly corrupted (wrong coordinates).

It’s not an ATI specific bug but more a windows resolution change issue especially with OpenGL
