MacBook Pro Refresh or Screen "Tearing"

Had MacBook Pro custom configuration built last Feb. For six months, now, Safari window content "tears," or looks like a piece of paper, scrunched vertically in "accordion" fashion so that horizontal defects running the width of the window corrupt content. Reboot is required to fix this problem, which then appears again gradually over time, again requiring reboot to fix.

After three trips to Apple Genius bar and 2 AppleCare tech support calls I was finally told this was a "know issue" with video circuitry in laptops built in first part of 2008, and that Apple was working on a software fix. If software fix not possible, then board would be replaced via recall of registered units.

Six months, and I'm still waiting.

Anyone have any info?
