Simply your video card driver messing up. Looks like the texture data in memory is completely corrupted.

a deleted texture would make the texture a white square, that is corrupted texture memory. It happens often on Intel on-board video chip-sets with older drivers.

I'm having that exact situation when my client is minimized by another application popping up in the background.
Minimizing by F4 key works without any side effects.

I once had a problem where vista corrupted my red bullet when I tried to make it orange...
I saw the bullet correctly however all other users saw white squares
Vista explorer would not let me delete the image, modify the image or change it in any way

then that computer killed its own graphics card while on screensaver several months later.
now i have linux and am happy
For all of you who have asked what a hutty is, there is one as my avatar.

That doesn't make sense. How would you messing with your local data files affect remote users?
