Weird bug

I don’t know why this keeps happening to me… I was working on a scene for my psa project, and somehow when I added a uv sphere, it comes out all messed up:

This is the first time it’s happened, and only in that one file. It’s not really a problem as I could just use an icosphere or append it from another file, but I’m just curious as to what’s causing it.

Here’s the blend, I removed all my previous work but this weird effect still happens. Tell me if it’s happening for you too, thx!

I downloaded your file - removed your icosphere, and was able to add an icosphere without a problem. (?) The icosphere in your file did look messed up though.

I am running:
blender 2.3.2-1
Debian Linux
i386

Do you have problems every time you create an icosphere?

no, I’m actually having problems adding a UVsphere. And it does work in all my other files. The problem is in that particular file (and I say “file” because when I add another scene in that same file, it’s messed up again).

I messed with it till I got bored and I can’t find the prob. Somebody (Mystery00?) posted a similar prob.

i had the same problem trying to fake GI lighting and using one of those

Import the objects you want to keep into a new blender file and see if that helps.

I’m wondering if there’s an issue with garbage in the blender file as I was just fighting an ever growing .blend file while working with appending objects via linking between files. The only way I was able to resolve the problem was to start with a clean .blend and append the stuff I wanted from the growing file and then append via link the stuff from my library .blend files.
