I'm getting a strange FBO error that seems to be caused by other applications (Firefox, Photoshop) affecting my JOGL app. I have code in which I create an FBO and render to it. Most of the time this works. However, if I have Firefox or Photoshop running in the background, sometimes it won't. If I kill these programs, my JOGL app magically starts working again.
This is probabaly an NVidia bug. A poster on another forum suggested a solution that involved recreating the context, but as far as I know this is impossible in JOGL:http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=298569#Post298569
I'm using a Quadro FX 570/PCI/SSE2 graphics card with the latest drivers and JSR 231.
