I remember a few updates ago in F11 I couldn't use rotate tool. Once I
was trying Shift-R my system became looked up for ever (God bless you,
Hard_Reboot_Button!). I'm pretty sure this arc-drawing bug also will
be cured soon.
By the way, about your theory of its relation with video card. Mine is:
1. lspci | grep ATI
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV350 AP [Radeon 9600]
01:00.1 Display controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV350 AP [Radeon
9600] (Secondary)

2. From xorg.conf:
Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard0"
	Driver      "ati"
EndSection

3. ati - Vendor-supplied driver for ati cards
