Redraw problems in iTunes 7

Advertisement

Just ugraded to iTunes 7.0.0, and I'm having window redraw problems. Whenever I play a video or go to one of the new fancy album art views (the latter of which usually won't display at all), it ends up causing a semi-random rectangular portion of the iTunes window to not redraw. So if I go back to the song list, it'll still be displaying the previous screen's information, though it still functions correctly as far as playing songs is concerned. If I drag the window down so that area is off-screen, then back again (or minimize and restore), it redraws the correct current screen. But then as soon as I scroll or anything, the visual bit gets stuck in that section again. (At least the program itself isn't freezing.)
I do have a fairly old video card. I have a four-year-old dual-867 G4 (MDD). I thought I had the cheapest video card available at the time, which I thought was an ATI, but my System Profiler claims I have an nVIDIA 32MB GeForce4 MX (AGP). It's driving two 1600x1200 displays.
I really like all the new features of iTunes 7, and the higher-quality video from the store. And I'm not really mad since I can still make everything work. But I'd have to agree with others here that Apple didn't do thorough enough testing this time around.
Ironically, everything I've tried so far worked fine on my Windows box at work... but it is brand new (3GHz dual core, just got them last week)... and only driving a single 1280x1024 display.
Anybody else find any fixes? I hope Apple has an update soon that fixes this.

It only partially fixed the problem for me. Prior to doing it, I was okay if I started up in old-style list mode and stayed there. If I switch to another mode, updates would just immediately die and I couldn't really do anything.
After the fix, I can now switch between the modes and things continue to work. I can also use the album view just fine. However, the cover view is still broken. It at least draws the covers now (instead of just a white box or an un-updated portion of the library list, which is what I got before), but the scroll controls in the covers area are just white boxes.
I'm on a G4/450 (Sawtooth) upgraded to a G4/1.4. I have two monitors running at 1600x1200, one on a 16 MB ATI Rage 128 Pro and the other on a 16 MB ATI Rage 128. My iTunes window is roughly 1600x960 pixels in size.
I saw that someone posted the minimum VRAM requirement for iTunes 7 as 16 MB. Where did they find this? All I saw on the download page when I checked yesterday was that it required some G3 variant - nothing about VRAM. And, I don't think many (an?) G3-era machines had 16 MB VRAM, so making that requirement explicit would seem important.
