Hi there,

Here I have a problem with Photoshop CS5 Extended (12.0.4 on Mac)

When I switch the mode to screen mode frequently my brush would start to work weirdly. Usually it will not be the same position as the mouse cursor, it will be on the upper left from the cursor, and the 'brush cursor' will be invisible but the system default arrow cursor will be visible. While the stroke is still generated by the brush, so it doesn't come out from the arrow cursor. s why I know the brush cursor is on the upper left corner from the arrow cursor.

This happens very often recently. And besides, another problem happens today: when I switch the screen mode frequently, all the windows, panels just freeze, until I quit the application.

Btw, there will not be any of these problems if I just keep the standard screen mode.

And my system info:
Photoshop: cs5, 12.0.4, x64, mac
system version number: Mac OS X 10.7.3

Hmm, 10.7.3 was supposed to fix the cursor bugs in the video drivers, but it appears that it did not fix all of them.
Which model of macintosh, and which GPU are you using?
