Yes, basically any application does it. Example: xterm, clicking its
frame opens roll-down menu of the window manager - in my case icewm. If
I don't choose any item and simply click somewhere else, some odds
remain on the screen in the place of the former roll-down menu.
Since all applications are hit, I suspect it's xorg who causes it.
Using AccelMethod XAA with recent intel driver (2.3.1) restores the
correct behaviour, but I discovered that ROOT is hit in such a case: the
graphics window (should be OpenGL graphics) "does not" remember its
history, i.e. when moving some other window on its top I can erase the
picture. This makes the system quite unsuable, so the only solution I
know about is to downgrade to
Any idea of some other test I can perform, please ? I append the full
list of packages that are installed on my laptop, maybe you can find a
problem there. In general, I am running Debian Lenny, regularly updated.
Thanks a lot for any hint,
