[vtkusers] QVtkWidgets problem with Qt::PaintOnScreen attribute and Aero

Hi Alex,

I have the same problem but regrettably no solution. When I switch tabs, 
tabs to the left are shown first then the active tab is drawn twice; 
firstly the image shifted to the top left and then finally in the 
correct position. I don't see garbage, just the hidden tabs.

Others have also reported 

Best regards
