Yes, I am seeing it under Compiz.  I can try without.  I should have mentioned xf86-video-intel 2.11.0.  Didn't think of the CM as a variable to be considered, thanks for the idea.

Server 1.8 demands 7.8 in the configure checks.  I assumed it had a good reason.

I see nothing at all wrong under 1.7.6/7.7, which I was running until 1.8 came out, unlike the other poster who has issues on his G45.

All built from release tarballs and unmodified (except a two-line backport of symbols KMS_BO_TYPE_CURSOR_64X64_A8R8G8B8 and KMS_BO_TYPE_SCANOUT_X8R8G8B8 to get 7.7 to compile against 2.4.19/20).

This is particularly ugly when editing a source file, because I am never sure where I am clicking or selecting.  It is most noticeable on a small scroll such as you get with the scroll wheel.  I see it also when scrolling a web page in a browser.  It tends to be reproducible if you scroll down and then up one scroll wheel click.  If I bring up a .jpg in the browser, I get some rectangular areas where the image is white.  If I then do a "back" and "forward" to get it redrawn, it is completely drawn.  I know this is not the best description, but I am looking for guidance on where to look first.
