Hi, on my MacBook Pro 13 early 2011 I have two issues with OpenGL enabled.
The video card is an Intel HD3000.
I don't have 3rd party plugins installed.
I tried to reinstall Photoshop CS5.1 and delete the preferences, doesn't fix the problems.

I'm running Lion 10.7.1 but these issue happen also on Lion 10.7.2 build 11C57 (the latest developer preview).
Looks like a driver problem, if so I hope you can get in touch with Apple.

See this image that explain better the two problems:

1) I need to refresh the image every time I use the spot healing brush tool, because the black circle is still on the image if I don't move or zoom the image or if I don't use again the spot healing brush tool.

2) The application frame enabled doesn't work correctly.

The application frame enabled and the spot healing brush tool work correctly if I disable OpenGl:

Yeah, we've found several OpenGL and graphics driver bugs in 10.7 - most specific to certain GPUs in certain models of Macintosh.

We'll double check and see if your bugs are on our list, and if not, add them to Apple's bug database.

Update, with the last build, 10.7.2 11C62 released today, the application frame now works correctly with opengl enabled with vertical sync and antialiasing both enabled.

The spot healing brush tool doesn't still work correctly, it works correctly if I disabled vertical sync in the opengl preferences.
