[opensuse] Tearing/stepping windows after updating to KDE4.11?

I just bumped up to KDE4.11, and I'm seeing something "new". It's
minor, but visually annoying when I notice it.

Basically if I move a window left or right, the window redraw steps...
a portion of the window is always leading the rest, and the step
point.. the tear?... drifts up the window from bottom to top. Once it
reaches the top it starts over at the bottom again. It's like a wave
flowing upward in the window.

glxinfo gives me this:
OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
OpenGL renderer
string: GeForce GTX 660 Ti/PCIe/SSE2
OpenGL version string: 4.3.0 NVIDIA 319.32

So, in theory it shouldn't be the video card....

Other info...

uname -a

cat /proc/cpuinfo
vendor_id : AuthenticAMD
cpu family : 16
model : 4
model name : AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 965 Processor

Any ideas on this one?
