Did you finish downloading all the updates when you logged in? I know this will happen if your client doesn't have all the graphics it needs to display the map.

Have you tried disabling OpenGL / updating your drivers?

Are you using Windows 7 now?

Windows 7 seems to ship with bad OpenGL drivers... lots of OpenGL games mess up with it.

I can only assume this is to promote use of DirectX and D3D

Without installing the drivers for your video card, most D3D applications don't work that well either.
