Since i'm using toa instead of SI, everytime i quit the game and return to desktop, everything remains black.
I can see my mouse cursor, but thats about it

I'm using radeon 9700 with cat 4.2 drivers

Same thing happens to me, but with Si Client.
I randomly get my screen freezing for 10 secounds then screen goes black, press alt+tab back to windows and then daoc closes :x
My comp rebooted once, something to do with an unexpected Direct draw problem.

I have geforce 4 ti4600 latest drivers and NEVER had these problems before this 1.67 patch.

Me too

Sometimes when I quit the screen locks up and my task bar appears half way up. I've got a Gforce fx5600 so it seems to be affecting most cards :(

I have the same thing. Youre not getting a black screen. If you leave it long enough Windows will gradually repaint. The daoc window is gone but its process is still running but with 100% CPU usage. You can do other things but it takes ages to respond. You can actually shut down Windows properly if you wait like 20 minutes for it to do its thing.

Happened on both my comps now, one AMD PC with ATI gfx one P4 note with NVidia gfx so I doubt its a chip/gfx issue. My money is on a bug in new client.
