Strange effects with Advanced Lighting Model with Linux Firestorm

I've started, in the last two weeks I think, to see very strange effects with the Advanced Lighting Model.  In some regions I get stripes on every surface, and in others I get items flashing on and off as I change my view.   I have not seen anyone else reporting this, and wondered if it was just my set-up.  I am running Firestorm on Archlinux, which is pretty cutting-edge, but I checked with the Official Viewer and got the same effect.  My hardware uses a nVidia GTX 1070ti GPU with a Ryzen 2700x and 32Gb of memory.  All the issues go if I switch ALM off.

Does anyone have any ideas for fixing or researching?

This kind of thing is the reason why I stay on the LTS releases for Ubuntu.  The whole experience is very stable and support lasts for much longer that the non-LTS releases.  Sure, I miss out on the latest updates to applications but I don't need to be on the latest versions.  Still get all security patches, etc.  Never had my Nvidia driver break either.

I'm still on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and am seeing no issues here with the Nvidia driver (v5.10 I believe).

Ya, Arch is a bit cutting edge.  Kernel 5.18.3 and nVidia 515.48.07.  I think Ubuntu would call it 5.15.

Bizzartifacts.

516.40-desktop-win10-win11-64bit-international-dch-whql is a NOPE.  (It doesn't work properly with Second Life.)

So I stepped back to:

512.95-desktop-win10-win11-64bit-international-dch-whql is a YES.  (It works properly with Second Life.)
