Little dots over WB 4.1 screen

With the configuration below attached, I see little color-inverted dots over the screen when the Workbench 4.1 redraws OS4 icons, and they appear over any graphics which OS4 tries to render over them. I will not post any pics because WinUAE or Windows are unable to grab a screenshot with them. I use the UAEGFX driver with the native screen mode which my notebook LCD screen uses. With PicassoIV or any non-native screenmode, doesn't appears any dots.

You say "color-inverted dots".

I don't use 4.1 but if I set any screen to 24bit there are also vertical rows of color-inverted dots all over my screen.
Since I never use 24bit for WB, I didn't care much about it.

Good old "ctrl+prt / paste in paint / save" trick worked, so here's a quick snap.
That what you see Leandro?

Yes, it's exactly that. Hmm, I wasn't aware I was using 24 bits, with 32 bits they are gone. Thanks for remembering that for me.

Thanks too for the tip about the "ctrl + prtsc" key, I was pressing alt instead of ctrl.
