Unable to see buttons/Text in OpenOffice and Wine when nVidia drivers are active

Good morning. I have been having problems using both OpenOffice and WINE when I have the 3D accelerated drivers active on my machine. If I disable or uninstall the drivers for my nVidia card, then I can view the buttons and text. Is there anyway of fixing this problem or am I going to have to live with just the 2D drivers?

Bad nvidia driver

This is probably an nvidia bug.

Here is a Howto with a workaround for this bug (referenced from that post):

Another workaround is to use nv drivers or buy a newer nvidia card.

Hopefully nvidia will release a fix soon.
