Basically I am running MWM as my window manager and opening an Xterm then exiting the xterm, after this the xterm window is still displayed but does not respond. I checked xwininfo and I see no reference to the window that I closed so I feel like the window was destroyed.   Another interesting observation is that if I take another good window and drag it over the bad window, the good window will slide under the bad window. Its very strange.  Lastly I have the NVIDIA driver installed (430.26) and this issue only happens when the COMPOSITE extension is disabled.

Based on that description it sound like you are using the prop. nvidea driver. To exclude
other issues can you test with the xorg driver ? (
