Can't figure out how that happened: logged in earlier today, and everything was fine. Logged out, of course didn't touch any of the settings, then logged back in later, and I got a problem I already had when trying Firestorm: looks like everything turned full bright. Here is a screenshot:

Did a complete reinstall, wiped out all my preferences, as well as my cache: no change, everything is still full bright. I know a workaround for this, which is to disable basic shaders, but if I do, the colors are changing, matching things no more match, and basically, I won't see things as other people see them.
Does anyone have any idea of what's going on here? And how things could change like that without me doing anything? Could it be a server change or something?

Well, solved the problem by restarting my Mac. And now everything is back to normal… I have no idea what has happened, but I'll know it can be a solution now. Still a very strange issue…

Sorry for the noise…

Probably a graphics driver issue. Do check that the driver is configured to let the applications decide about the various settings (for example with ATI drivers, do disable the "AI").

Thanks Henri. Have no idea about how to do that on a Mac, though, not even sure it's possible at all. I guess another application messed up things. Well, I know what to do if it happens again…
