I've had the same behaviour too, rawhide before a few days ago was working
just fine with the nv driver, but after that update all the images seemed
very overly bright, like some gamma correction was turned up all the way
Text however was as before, just the desktop background, icons and window
decorations that were trying to burn out my eyes :-)
Strinking resemblance is that i'm also using the nv driver, to be specific
with a 7800GTX and a 24" dell LCD screen connected with a dvi cable.
My workaround has been to drop xorg back to the fc5 one (and related
dependencies) and wait out the storm until its fixed, however if a tester is
required, I could switch back to 'the light hurts us!!' mode again :-)

It would be really nice if a driver used was mentioned and a
bugzilla reference added. There were already similar postings
and none of these bothered with details.
Just for clarity. My test box happens to use 'radeon' driver and
I did not notice anything like described.

If you back off to a driver from an installation DVD does it
In my case, as the OP's in the posts you cite, it was xorg updates
of 6/14 that caused the problem. I've tried reverting xorg-x11-drv-nv,
but then X fails to start.

If the OP's intention was the same as mine, it was only to inquire
of the sort "am I only one?". Seems we're not. I was goin to try a fresh
install of test-1 from CD's before persuing a BugZ.
