After the system has been running for awhile (like a day or so), the window frame and the window contents seem to become disconnected in the Z-axis.

In addition the close button (etc) glow effects also occur UNDER the window titlebar. Restarting WB5 does nothing to correct the problem, though a system reboot works fine.

BACKGROUND
So I'm a biochemistry grad student at UW-Madison, where I study structure-function relationships of RNA polymerase, the enzyme responsible for catalyzing transcription. Transcription is the first step in gene expression in ALL LIFE and copies the genetic code from the gene on DNA into a molecule of RNA. This RNA can then be read by the ribosome to be translated into the protein code to make a protein.

I've been studying transcription by assembling paused complexes of RNAP dir...
