Sounds like KDE is using a 1x1 pixmap for the window background, rather
than setting a solid color.  Lame.  We'll just need to do something
similar to what exaComposite does for 1x1 repeating pictures -- read out
the one pixel and solid-fill it over the whole thing.

(The change that caused this problem was tested on a sis 305)
